Hataka Modern RAF colour accuracy

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the Hataka Acrylic modern RAF colours? If so how accurate do you think they are?

Im not sure about accuracy but the difference between LAG to Barley grey to Mid Sea Grey looks better than the Mr Hobby colours beside each other. Problem is the Hataka LAG looks wrong, too light and missing the (is it a green) tinge to it.

Next time I see you remind me and you can compare them directly against my genuine copy of BS381C-1996 :)

Why haven't you got round to

a: doing the modern RAF colours (maybe you have but I haven't looked)

b: doing a range of acrylics (lacquer based ones are fine with me)

b) Working on it - we've been slowly experimenting with acrylic binders which use the same naptha thinner we already make. You'll get the drying time and the adhesion.

Ah, my bad!

I'm not likely to be using these colours too often once I've finished the Phantoms but will keep your ones in mind if I do need more. I'd be interested in trying the acrylics when you get them up and running.
