Vallejo Model Air


Acrylic colors developed specially for airbrush techniques. with very finely ground pigments and an acrylic resin with properties of extreme resistance and durability.

Model Air is a range of water-based, matte acrylic colors, developed especially for airbrushing. In the formulation of this range various new resins have been selected for qualities which up till now had not been achieved in water-based colors. The strength, resistance and covering power of Model Air is superior to any acrylic airbrush color currently available and also allows for application by brush to highlight the smallest details of the miniature. The pigments have been selected according to their degree of light-fastness and optimum micronization. The effects of washes and transparencies can be obtained by diluting the colors; all colors and varnishes can be mixed together and diluted with Airbrush Thinner. The colours have been very carefully chosen to provide the modelpainter with the references most frequently employed. Tests have been carried out for over two years to develop the tonalities which correspond to the RLM, RAL, ANA, FS and BS colours commonly used. Colours can be mixed with one another, diluted with water, Model Air Thinner or Varnish or even alcohol, according to the effect desired, but we recommend the use of Model Air Thinner since this product conserves the properties of the colours. Model Air adheres excepcionally well to all surfaces. The adhesion of Model Air to resin models, plastics, steel and white metal is extraordinary. A primer is usually not needed; if the object to be painted is very dark, a base coat of white or grey will help bring out the luminosity of the colours.

Packaging: Bottles of 17 ml. bottle with eyedropper. This packaging prevents the paint from evaporating and drying in the container.
