New colours - FS12197 International Orange and RAL2005 Luminous Day Glow Orange

Recommended Posts

We are pleased to announce two new colours in our range. These colours are seldom required for very large areas on models but nevertheless they are so distinct that when required they are difficult to substitute.

 

ACUS46 is FS 12197 International Orange, which was sometimes referred to as day-glo and which was regularly seen dotted around USAF aircraft during the cold war, indeed some aircraft had the entire rear fuselage and tails painted in it! The colour would fade somewhat in service, but the fresh appearance is very distinct.

 

ACLW30 is RAL 2005 and officially called Luminous Orange, but is day glow orange used on Luftwaffe aircraft through the cold war including F-104G tip tanks and covering varying sized areas of all sorts of German aircraft from Rockwell Broncos to Seakings. Again, this colour would fade to orangey-yellow over time, but the fresh appearance is unique and unobtainable by mixing any combinations of other more sober coloured paints. It requires the specific pigment used in our new product. Please note that ACLW30 in particular must only be thinned with refined mineral spirit thinner such as Colourcoats Thinner. Using cellulose/lacquer thinner with this product will not work. This is due to the specific pigments used.

Both ACUS46 and ACLW30 are so bright that we recommend a solid white base coat before use. The staining power of the required pigments is inherently rather weak so Colourcoats' normal excellent colour density cannot be achieved whilst maintaining the colour saturation necessary. Upon a white base though, both cover well and airbrush users in particular will be able to achieve the completed coverage in a single sitting if using our C03 Matt White product thinned with Colourcoats Thinners which will be sufficiently dried by the time the airbrush is cleaned out to move straight on to the orange.
