I know the topic of these paints have been brought up before, but only lightly in passing.
Has anyone tried making a match to WWII VVS colors or AKAN paints with Vallejo?

I myself do not have the entire line of VMA colors to test (yet), only about 30 bottles so far, nor do
I have actual AKAN paints or chips to compare to. One can go by what Vallejo themselves list as the
"FS match" but as we all know a manufacturers interpretation of a match can be a bit.... off.

Hoping someone else out there may have started to make this effort to save me from having to buy every
single bottle of Vallejo!  Cheesy

Vallejo are hardy available in my town, only in a shop of role play and I suppose that they have more ork's skin greens than Soviet ones.
I've heard that Vallejo are better than Tamiya and Gunze for brush use. I would like to know if this is right.

Hi.

Some VVS o Vallejo Model Air research was already made by the Russian modeller Dmitry with following suggestions:

AMT-4 >>> Vallejo 010
AMT-6 >>> 057
AMT-7 >>> 008
AMT-1 >>> 023
AMT11 >>> 047
AMT-12 >>> 052
A-14 >>> 047

Please, bear in mind these paints are considering the scale effect for the 1/72 scale.

Regards
Viktor

Thanks for that information, Viktor. I'm in the process of purchasing another batch of colors to add to my selection, and I'll post results after they arrive for everyone to weigh in on.
