PostSubject: Immortal Hobbies carries AK Interactive   Sat May 25, 2013 1:11 pm

Folks,
I have tested several brands of weathering materials and paints over the last few months. Of these I like the AK Interactive product the most. So in keeping with wanting to have the best available product
I have sent AK Interactive my first order this weekend, I have no idea how long it will take to get here but I am excited to add this complete product line to my shop.
Short term individual paints are not coming but as soon as they are available I will stock ALL the colors. The reason I have chosen AK Interatcive is
1. RAL colors making it easy to find what you need to paint what you want
2. Flow, through my airbrush they are a dream to paint with, nice coverage, easy to mix and consistent color.
3. Mix - Water or airbrush thinner.
4. Price point - economical price points are always a great help to those of us with other hobbies, kids, wives, car insurance etc.
5. Water based acrylic so it can be shipped without dangerous goods clearance making shipping low cost.
Reputation AK Interactive has been used for a number of years with quality model makers backing this product.
Once I recieve the product a special discount will go out to Can Am members to try this product. Like me I am sure once you use it, it will stay on your paint tray.
Here is the makers web site,
http://www.ak-interactive.com/inicio/

Thanks, Curtis

Sweet!
Check out their quarterly magazine. It's called The Weathering Magazine. Probably the best I've seen in terms of detail, and it's well written too.

Coverage question;

Do you have a rough idea of how much of a 1/16 scale Tiger I or Panther could be covered, using one container of paint, in this container size;

Stinger I ordered the 1945 camo book but yes I can get the books. I am thinking it would be better on DVD though as some of the books are sold out.

Sorry no, that is a trick question because we all thin differently and paint either heavy or light. I can tell you the coverage is awesome and thinned properly it takes less to cover an equal area in comparison to other brands.

I would be interested in some of the books too, expecially the 1945 Cameo and the FAQ2!

If possible. Very Happy

AK Product arrived today. Books will be in shortly as well. I'll need a bit to get it loaded on the site but it will be worth the wait.
