Hataka from Poland continues to release a rapidly growing line of color-matched acrylic paints to fill the voids in color coverage for scale modelers. In this set, we have six new colors that replicate the camouflage colors used by the Israeli Air Force in the 1970s. This set provides the unique shades of color before the IAF transitioned to colors closely matched to FS 595 equivalents.
This set contains six 17ml bottles of paint with a set of colors which include:
- A012 Dark Tan
- A078 Aluminum
- A090 Sand
- A091 Pale Green
- A092 Duck Egg Blue
- A093 Green
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!
