  1. Hi there is a new AK Interactive IDF Uniform Colour set that has 6 colours and a basic painting guide on the back. Once you know what colours are suitable google is your friend for all the variations.
  2. May be late but try the newish AK Interactive IDF Uniform Colour Set. This has six colours that have all three uniform colours as well as boots and 2 webbing / accessory colours. (Lifecolor also has an IDF Easy Three set for the 3 IDF uniform colours.)
  3. Ive just taken some Tamiya White fine surface primer off a resin figure kit. I used a new to me product from Vantage Modelling Solutions its called Clean Slate rmvr 2.0. (Its available on ebay and while not cheap works just grand.) Basically all I had to do was pour some in a shallow dish and just cover the figure. (Use one just large enough for the figure to cut waste.) I let it stand for a few minutes then used an old brush to just work off anything that was still on the figure - removed 99.9% with minimal fuss and no damage to the resin.

( I have some old reeves brushes 30 odd years or so and this made them come out almost like new. ) Also my newer and more expensive brushes are as good as the day I bought them. I do use it every time I clean though.
  6. Hi They are very very good - they have detailed point by point instructions and photographs with info of the paints ie Acyrlics or Oils etc used. Usually have 4 to 7 pages of detailed close ups and general views of a master at work. That said they are usually of larger scale 1:9th / 10th or 12th. A very good first buy that is a lot thicker on page count is their Scale Model Handbook WWII special Vol.2, this also has a lot more 35th scale figures and has some marvellous pieces about painting faces and eyes in that scale.
