Discontinued Testors Model Master Colors


Recommended Posts

I'll agree with Kevin--I just painted a Hasegawa 1/72 DAP Beaufighter Mk. 21 with the Vallejo NATO Green Surface Primer, and it reminded me of how enamels behave--you know, chasing the wet spot with the paint pattern from the airbrush. A drop of Vallejo Airbrush Thinner to every five or six drops of paint...sprays nicely, lays down nicely, goes down "like buttah". Of the 10 minutes of the seminar I got to see at the AMPS International show, their rep does say that you should--not a requirement, but should to be on the safe side--use the Surface Primer under any topcoats. They don't need to be full coverage coats of the Surface Primer, and judging by the way the green sucked down tot he surface of the Beaufighter, it won't be too thick if you top coated...


I've heard people have had issues with the Vallejo "Liquid Metal", but the "Metal Color" is apparently the best acrylic metalizing paint out there, along with the AKI equivalent.
