This set of two acrylic and three Xtreme Metal paints is essential for painting models of most of the aircraft used by the United States Army Air Force from late 1943 until the end of World War Two and shortly after. Included are two different olive drab shades that were used for painting the anti-glare panels, and three different shades of aluminium, which allow for reproducing the difference between the panels made from various metal sheets and aluminium-painted, fabric-skinned control surfaces. Our paints are not only historically accurate and specially formulated with top quality components; they also have been designed taking into account the scale reduction effect*. Our acrylic paints are ready to use straight from the bottle; simply shake, and the paint is ready to go. Dilution is not necessary when airbrushing AK acrylic paints; however, when painting camouflage or fine lines, add a few drops of our specially formulated thinner AK-712. Useful for all acrylic paints, the AK-712 improves the performance of the paint and is vastly superior to most other available thinners, resulting in a greater degree of coverage when applied by brush. The Xtreme Metal paints are high-quality metallic colours developed with outstanding pigments, and especially formulated for the modeller to achieve the best results. Resistant to any kind of weathering, with ultra-high coverage power, high sheen, will not damage the plastic, and you can varnish without altering their glossiness. These are quite simply the highest quality metallic paints ever seen.

*A model aircraft reflects less light than an actual full size aircraft; this means the color applied to the model must be of a lighter shade to look the same as the full sized version. If the same color tones were applied to each, the model would appear darker as it reflects less light.
