LifeColor Aircraft Perfect Metal Set 2

A recent addition to the range of acrylic paint sets from LifeColor. I happily admit I am a long time fan of LifeColor paints and was interested to see how I fared with these metallics.

Metallic colours often need an undercoat, usually a gloss black, but these can be used without that base coat. I have been trying these out. No undercoat and to give it a real trial, brush painted. I used 3 coats on a new Bronco Models 1/48 kit of the Mig-15bis and am happy with the end result. I will be posting a separate item in the 'Kits' section showing how it comes out. The colour is on but I want to add panel liner and then markings just to finish it off.

Water soluble acrylic colours for modelling and hobby. Life Color is excellent for paint brushing or airbrushing on plastic, resin, metal, vinyl, wood, cloth and ceramic.
This set includes:

UA 792 Polished Aluminium
UA 793 White Aluminium
UA 794 Dark Aluminium
UA 795 Steel
UA 796 Exhaust Jet
UA 797 Burnt Iron

Using LifeColour
Clean surfaces to be painted
For airbrushing, dilute the colour to a milky consistency using water or LifeColor Thinner.
Airbrush at very low pressures. (Iwata airbrushes give the best performance and atomisation at low pressures.)
Apply colour in thin coats with a brush or airbrush
Allow to dry completely between coats
Clean your airbrush with airbrush cleaner and flush through with water
