The six colors included in this paint set are specifically designed to aid the modeler in creating a realistic appearance for all types of wheels and tracks. The set includes a Darker Black color with a satin finish to represent new tires, while the wear of older tires is represented by a Dark Grey color. Also included are two new shades of track colors; a Light Rust color to represent fresh rust as might be observed on the tracks of an abandoned AFV, and a Dark Tracks that accurately creates the appearance of operational treads. Finally, we provide two tones, Dry Mud and Light Dust, which will allow you to dirty and dust your wheels and tracks easily for a natural appearance. AK acrylic paints are water soluble and can be applied by brush and airbrush; additionally, AK paints are free of odors commonly found in aggressive solvent based paints.
Our AFV series paints are not only historically accurate and specially formulated with top quality components to exacting standards but take into account the effect of scale reduction. Ready to use straight from the bottle, simply shake, and the paint is ready to go. Dilution is not necessary when airbrushing AK paints. However, when painting camouflage or fine lines, add a few drops of our specially formulated thinner AK-712. Useful with all acrylic paints, AK-712 improves the performance of the paint and is vastly superior to most other available thinners.
