First Look

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 six new colors that replicate the camouflage colors used by the by the early Israeli Air Force on their piston-powered fighters and early jets.

This set contains six 17ml bottles of paint with a set of colors which include:

  • A179 Reed Green
  • A171 Gray-Blue
  • A172 Medium Brown
  • A173 Silk Gray
  • A030 European I Green
  • A078 Aluminium

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!
