First Look

AK Interactive has been producing a very wide range of paints and weathering products over the last several years targeted to the armored fighting vehicle and figure modelers. Here is a revision of one of those sets with six colors targeted for lighter skin toned subjects.

AK Interactive AK 3010 Flesh and Skin Colors

This set contains six 17ml bottles of paint with a full range of skin colors from highlight to shadow. The colors in this set include:

  • Base Flesh
  • Light Flesh
  • Highlight Flesh
  • Shadow Flesh
  • Dark Shadow Flesh
  • Cheekbone Glaze

The formulation of this set is a thicker viscosity tailored for good coverage using a paint brush though it can be airbrushed, if desired, using thinner. What is nice about a set like this is that this supply will likely paint a company or more of scale soldiers before you need to think about obtaining replacements. It would be nice to see a similar set offered for darker skin tones subjects as well.

The MSRP in the US for this set is $29.99 or around $5.00 USD per bottle. Be aware that there are a few online retailers in the US charging $35.00 or more for this same set, so please shop around.

My sincere thanks to Stevens International for this review sample!
