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 colors that replicate the distinctive colors used by the Russian Air Forces' rotary winged aircraft.

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

  • A230 Dark Gray
  • A296 Faded Eggplant Gray
  • A150 Blue-Green
  • A293 Extra Light Blue
  • A294 Mustard
  • A155 Air Superiority Blue
  • A085 Khaki Green
  • A295 Medium Tan

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!
