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 new release useful for depicting the uniforms and clothing worn by the German Afrika Korps (DAK) during World War II.
This set contains six 17ml bottles of paint with a variety of uniform colors, many of which can be found on the same soldier. The colors in this set include:
- AK3111 Desert Uniform Base
- AK3112 Desert Uniform Lights
- AK3113 Desert Uniform Shadows
- AK3114 Green Uniform Base
- AK3115 Green Uniform Lights
- AK3116 Green Uniform Shadows
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.
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 AK Interactive for this review sample!
