Did a few tests of the new AK Real Colors acrylic lacquers. Thought I should share.
Tested 4 paints on 3 surfaces.
Paints tested, all at 50/50 paint to Tmiya X-20A thinner:
RC074 Dark Brown
RC046 Ivory interior
RC024 Olive Drab Faded
Bare plastic (top)
Tamiya fine surface primer (left)
Army Painter black primer (right)
Coverage on the whole very good indeed. paint settles and dries quickly to a dead matt smooth finish. Resisted masking tape used after 30 minutes drying.
Result was probably best on the bare plastic (you could easily paint these directly onto the plastic), and definitely worst on the Tamiya primer (could be better if the primer was left a day as I would usually do, I should test that later). I also need to test these on acrylic primers which I often use.
The brush marks on the dunkelgrau on the tamiya primer are the result of me painting over the bad coverage I got first spray out. Best ignored but the coverage was not so great with that colour on that primer.
Overall and paints
