Hataka from Poland continues to release a rapidly expanding line of color-matched acrylic paints to fill the voids in color coverage for scale modelers. In this set, we have eight new colors that replicate the camouflage colors used by the Soviet Air Force during the earlier part of World War II.
This set contains eight 17ml bottles of paint with a set of colors which include:
- A078 Aluminium
- A127 AE-9 Light Gray
- A128 AII Green
- A129 AII Light Blue
- A072 AMT-7 Gray-Blue
- A073 AMT-4 Camo Green
- A041 Night Black
- A153 MK-7 Temporary White (Winter Camo)
As previously tested, Hataka paints go on smoothly and without any problem and responds well to the homemade thinner which is similar to Tamiya acrylic thinner. The Hataka acrylics respond just as well with the Tamiya thinner and even using Windex to clean the airbrush.
My sincere thanks to Hataka Hobby for this review sample!
