I've just used the Akan acrylic lacquer AMT-7 to paint the bottom of one of my Yak-1 projects. I'm happy to report that it sprays just beautifully -- easily as well as any other paint I've ever used -- both for general application and post-shading.

That does look good (by the way, nice Yak-1, Pip!).  Is that AKAN A-14 in the wheel wells?

Hi Jason.
No, it's my own mix for A-14: 35237 Medium Gray and 16081 Navy Gloss Gray mixed 1-to-1 with a dollop of 36270 to lighten it. I was aiming at something like, but maybe a bit lighter than, 26187, given as a reference for A-14 both by the South Front instructions and the scalewiki.ru color chart. The Akan rendition has the same character but is, predictably, somewhat darker.

Hi,
I found this partial summary of AKAN paints used for plane painting mainly during WWII era on scalemodels.ru. Even if these scans cannot be used as absolute chips of the particular color, they gives good idea about relative darkness, brightness and hue of those paints:





Note two red options for stars and marking.
Not too many green options. I miss there green A-24m and greyish blue A-28m, probably due to big similarity to their nitro relatives AMT-xx.
Also no 4BO here as not used as camo paint on planes, but similar to AMT-4 as seen at http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=1555.msg12418#msg12418:


 
Hope it helps.

Hi Misos, thank you for the note. Although, I already know these chips and they helped for the  general table of  colors at http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/colors/color-table.html
My request of some time ago was to see what colors they produce for tanks.
About A-24m, I guess you are right, bot for the light blue A-28m (matt), the Alboom Nakrasok shows a color similar to British Sky, while the corresponding A-28g (gloss) is of a more convincing blue shade. I guess that mr. Akanihin was in doubt for these discordant shades and preferred to renounce to add this color.
Regards
