AK Real Colors Test..1/48 Beaufighter
My first article… on my favourite model building website..
1/48 Tamiya kit built from the box to test the new ‘AK Real Colors’. I have to say that these are the paints I’ve been looking for… Dry instantly, very tough, accurate colours, and most importantly they dry to a semi-gloss finish, which means I can start weathering right away and less gloss coats are needed, not an
issue with this Tamiya’s 1/48 Beaufighter, but a few coats of gloss would obscure the rivet detail on a 1/48 Eduard Spitfire for example, or any modern high-detail kit.
Thanks for looking,
PS… I like the smell, never gonna be as good as enamels, but best acrylic smell ever…just a personal preference is all…
