Vallejo Model Air is a range of liquid acrylic paints developed especially for use in airbrushes, with very fine ground pigments and an acrylic resin which is durabale and resistant. Fast becoming the airbrush paint of choice for serious modellers with its large colour range.
The formula contains a new acrylic resin with properties until now impossible to obtain in a waterbased acrylic. The resistence, hardness and covering power of Model Air is superior to any known acrylic for airbrushing.
The pigments used for airbrush colours need to be ground to the finest possible consistency to avoid obstructing the airbrush valves. The state of the art milling process of the pigments used in the Model Air formula gives the model painter technical assurance and the finest texture when applying the colours to the model, and produces a very superior qualtity when applying the colours with a brush for miniscule details, for washes and transparencies and layered application of diluted glazes.
Colours can be mixed with one another, diluted with water, Model Air Thinner or Varnish, according to the effect desired, but we recommend the use of Model Air Thinner since this product keeps the properties of the colours. Vallejo Model Air adheres exceptionally well to all surfaces. The adhesion of Model Air to resin models, plastics, steel and white metal is extraordinary. Once protected with varnish, (Gloss, Matte or Satin) Model Air can be overpainted with solvent based enamels or oilcolours: they withstand cleaning with turpentine and even a light wash with alcohol.
Model Air is supplied in a useful 17 ml. bottle with eyedropper. This packaging prevents the paint from evaporating and drying in the container. Empty eyedropper bottles are also available as are many different themed sets, thinners, primers, washes and cleaners.
