New AK Interactive products for June/July release…

The German army used several ordinances for camouflage on their vehicles during WWII. This set includes the most important colours in use from 1937 to 1944, and includes 6 colours designed to represent the initial Dunkelbraun and Dunkelgrey camo, the middle war version of Dunkelgelb and a green colour used by Waffen SS and Polizei units on light and second line vehicles. Finally, the set also includes two different versions of Olivgrun  allowing the modeller represent the different paint conditions and faded effects for this colour. For the first time we will be able to paint German tanks without complex mixes and hours of research. These paints have been designed in consideration of the Scale Reduction Effect (subtle lighter than actual colour), to obtain the correct colours in our kits. These paints are designed to be effective for airbrush and brush and are water-soluble– avoiding strong smells and harmful solvents.

Its superb adhesion qualities combined with a matt-satin finish make our primer the perfect choice for preparing models for painting.
