Hataka from Poland has released a new paint set which provides the essential colors for Israeli Defense Force tanks and vehicles from the early 1960s to present day. This six-bottle set provides the essential colors to replicate the colors of these vehicles throughout most of the IDF's history. This set is released in the Orange Line which is an airbrush-ready lacquer.
This set contains six 17ml bottles of paint with a set of paint brushable colors that include:
- C018 US Olive Drab
- C239 Seafoam Green
- C243 IDF Sinai Gray '87
- C244 IDF Sinai Gray '61
- C248 IDF Sinai Gray '82
- C258 IDF Sand Gray '73
As previously tested, Hataka paints go on smoothly and without any problem and responds well to generic lacquer thinner as well as Hataka's lacquer thinner.
Each Hataka paint bottle includes a mixing ball which helps to stir the paint back into its intended color after sitting for a period of time. That turns out to be an important feature for paints in these small 17ml bottles as some competitors do not have any way to mix their colors without dismantling the bottle. This feature is also important as Hataka has a solid reputation for producing accurate colors.
My sincere thanks to Hataka Hobby for this review sample!
