Nice.  If only they had enamel and/or lacquer paints (acrylics and my airbrush don't get along).

Hi John and Jason,
I don't love the packages of six, I hope to find separate cans. If one buys both the packages, he has duplicated cans of paint, while other important ones are missing. 4B0 is of uncertain use on planes, AII blue would have been better, it was utilized for years aside AMT-7. AMT-1 would have been more useful too. Any matt white is good for winter painting.
Regards
Massimo

I agree, Massimo.  And white is white.  I mean is there such a thing as "VVS White"?  Considering that it was just chalk mixed with casein (glue) (how uniformly white was the chalk?), and was applied in so many different manners, from very even coverage to very splotchy and light coverage, I don't think so.  Admittedly there was a designation for this temporary paint, MK-7, but to me any white will do.

Regards,

Jason
