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 have been used on British Army helicopters since the 1970s.
This set contains eight 17ml bottles of paint with a set of colors which include:
- A146 BS Olive Drab BSC381C:298
- A125 NATO Black
- A236 BS Olive Green BSC381C:220
- A141 BS Medium Sea Gray BSC381C:637
- A144 BS Dark Sea Gray BSC381C:638
- A237 BS Light Stone BSC381C:361
- A068 US Army Desert Sand FS30279
- A067 US Army Helicopter Drab FS34031
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!
