    Hello guys,
    My latest review for the Michigan Toy Soldier blog about AK Interactive's "Real Colors" paint line. Paint with incredible coverage, smooth finish and very good color rendering.

    For those who do not know, the line was launched with an impressive book of AFV's painting and a high compatibility Thinner that works with other brands. Ease of use is unsurpassed...

    A curiosity being very similar to the Tamiya as they perform with a brush?

    Kurz, I have not used them on the brush yet. I am not a fan of Lacquers (of any brand) for paint brush, and would not consider it for my personal work, as I don't go there with Tamiya and Gunze also, so the main review focus is airbrushing. But I am confident they will behave positively for those who are familiar with Tamiya, when paired with a good retarder / flow improver. I might get to test and review this feature in the future.

    Best,
    Julian

    They can be used with a brush, they are actually better than the Tamiya for paint brushing. There's no "settling" of the pigments and the need to stir them as with the others. A good shaking of the bottle and they are ready to go.

    The problem is that any paint I tried is better than Tamiya by brush, probably one of the worst paint to use with a hairy stick, more than anything else I think it's interesting to know if the second stroke lift the first as often happens with the Japanese paint,the coverage, etc...

    You have to let it dry a couple of seconds and then hit it with the second coat. It's the normal way of getting a quality finish with any acrylic and lacquer paint.
