DAF Acrylics

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm going to start working on the Airfix P40 new tool in 112 Sq markings and was wondering about paint - acrylics to brush. I've seen a Valejo set of paints for RAF desert aircraft which seems to include what I'd need - any comments on their accuracy? Any alternatives that are recommended? Ideally I don't want to do too much mixing of colours, though adding a drop of this or that I could manage!

Thanks in advance

There are new Polish paints sold in sets. The name of company is Hataka. There's a set dedicated to RAF during the Second World War.

I may be wrong but IIRC the Vallejo sets use paints in the model air range. These are thinned for airbrush use and are not ideal for brush painting.

Personally I use lifecolor paints for the raf desert scheme. They are very good for brushing

Thanks for your input gents.

Dominik, I've had a look at the Hataka ones but haven't got much information about them as they're so new - they look promising though - has anyone tried them for brushing? How are the colour matches that anyone has tried?

Giorgio, I've heard lots of good things about lifecolor paints - I've read that it said that the mid-stone is too yellow (though I've never seen them on a model, so can't say myself) - how did you find the colour match?

Thanks again.
