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. In this release, we have their mix of lighting and shading colors for Soviet WWII uniforms. This set provides the base color, the shade that represents direct light, the shade that represents shadow, and even the emblem/headband color.
This set contains six 17ml bottles which include:
- AK3121 Russian Uniform Lights
- AK3122 Russian Uniform Base
- AK3123 Russian Uniform Shadows
- AK3124 Russian Blue Lights
- AK3125 Russian Blue Base
- AK3126 Red Emblem
The formulation of this set is a thicker viscosity tailored for good coverage using a paint brush though it can be airbrushed as well. This gives you the flexibility to apply base coat, camouflage, etc., using your airbrush and then use the paints for touch-ups after installing photo-etched parts and other details. The only issue I have with this set is the labeling on the box art that I guess a mockery of the Russian (Cyrillic) alphabet. AK Interactive's chief competitor did something equally offensive with their branding but have since phased that out of their latesst releases.
My sincere thanks to AK Interactive for this review sample!
