PostSubject: Humbrol Authentic Enamels:   Wed Jul 10 2013, 17:38

Designed originally for brush painting.

This range of paint first appeared in the late '70's as boxed sets, containing 6 tinlets, they also contained lead in their pigmentation, but some of this range of enamels, can last the modeller several decades, as a large range has been manufactured by several different manufacturers, some of Authentic range has never been re produced in any form, one example is the Mauve that was applied to some Japanese Army aircraft of World War II. These paints are true colours in either BS or FS Formulas, but I cannot be certain with the IJA Earth and Mauve colours used on some aircraft.

As all of these paints contain lead, if used in an airbrush the mix ratio is reversed.




NOTE:- The two different labels used on these tinlets.
The original white lid with the label insert {which contains lead} to the Printed lid style.


This particular enamel paint range was re issued late in 2012, as Luftwaffe subjects only, as the entire range will be re issued in the near future.
But has yet this range has not shown up in any of the local Hobby Shops in this Country.
These paints require a specialist Thinner.
