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 two washes and one pigment to replicate the effects of moss and green growth on abandoned vehicles and/or concrete structures left in moist environments.
This set contains three 35ml bottles which include:
- AK148 Faded Green Pigment
- AK675 Decay Deposits
- AK676 Moss Deposits
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. When using this set on concrete structures and using some of the unique concrete weathering colors, you can replicate that look that happens when nature proves that moss doesn't grow on a rolling stone. Combined with rust weathering products, this set will provide that distinctive look on vehicles and metal structures left unused for extended periods.
My sincere thanks to AK Interactive for this review sample!
