New Products from AK Interactive in June

D.A.K. Profile Guide
21.50 EUR
This book shows the original German camouflage of vehicles used by the Deutsche Afrika Korps of WWII. We look at German Army vehicle colours for the African campaign, including the European Dark Gray (RAL 7021) in which they originally used when they landed in Libya. This continues through to the initial camouflage colours, Yellow-Brown RAL 8000 with Green-Gray spots RAL 7008 (in 1941), and the new Yellow-Brown RAL 8020 and Sand Gray RAL 7027, used from 1942. AK also include a selection of Italian vehicles, often forgotten, which fought alongside the Germans against the Allies from 1941 to 1943. This is supplemented by the addition of allied vehicles serving with the Axis troops, with some curious American halftracks on a double page spread, with distinctive German markings, from 1943. 

Over 170 profiles cover schemes from the most common camouflage to the most original and unusual vehicles used by the DAK and Regio Esercito, including major artillery pieces used in Africa, highlighting above all the powerful 88 mm Flak 18/36/37. Through the 108 pages of this book, you will find inspiration for your next African modelling project; projects that you can enhance further with the AK 550 Africa KorpsColors Acrylic Set, and the AK 068 DAK Weathering Set.

This set of paints belongs to AK’s new product line, The “Figure Series”. It is specially formulated by our art department for painting the legendary uniforms used by German troops during WWII. The paints are a matte finish, of extremely high quality, and their covering and drying abilities are designed to maximise your potential for figure painting. They can be applied with a brush and also with an airbrush, diluting them first with specific thinners for acrylic paints. The colour formulation is based on original photographs and surviving uniforms, allowing you to easily replicate the colour and shades that were made famous by these uniforms. This set includes 6 acrylic colours, and a small step by step guide.

It is specially formulated by our art department to paint accessories, leather, buckles, buttons, boots, etc. on miniature figures from any period of the war. Paints are matte, of extremely high quality, and their covering and drying abilities are designed to maximise your ability to recreate any type of accessory. These paints can be applied by brush or airbrush, diluting with thinners specific for acrylic paints.

The three colours in this set will allow you to recreate the vehicles used by NATO troops, deployed worldwide. This set includes green, brown and black colours, common for all NATO camouflage in all theatres of conflict. These are accurate colours, with a little modification for downscaling. The formula of this acrylic is designed for both brush and airbrush, and are soluble in water, meaning no odours, as you would expect from the more aggressive solvent-based paints. Our acrylics are manufactured by AK-Interactive, and are made from our own formula which prevents problems with them drying in the airbrush.

4.45 EUR
A water based polymeric rust primer colour, which is incredibly versatile and perfect to be used as the basis for any colour. Its adhesion capability, coupled with its matte-satin finish, makes it perfect for preparing any model for painting. As well as its high covering power, it only leaves a thin layer on your surface, protecting those small, valuable details from being lost. This is perfect as a working base for any vehicle which you wish to depict as rusting.

4.45 EUR

Water based polymeric brown paint, perfect for all types of tracks. Its adhesion capacity, coupled with its vinyl-satin matte surface, makes it perfect for preparing tracks for painting. Despite that high covering power, it only leaves a thin layer on your surface, so as not to obliterate any fine detail you may be working with.

All of these are now available at the links in the preview above and from AKInteractive’s distributors worldwide..
