Have you looked at Hataka HTK-A282 Dutch Demo Orange (light)?
No, largely because I didn’t think anyone would make it, and Hakata isn’t at the front of my mind anyway :smiling3: Thanks for the tip, but I think I’ll give it a miss — my only experience with Hakata wasn’t overly positive.

I did a couple of tests, and silver paint with a layer of Tamiya Clear Orange over it gives a good metallic orange effect, so I think I’ll try that.

They worked as expected John, I always used two sized brushes for the decal work and these fit in nicely.:thumb2:

Used it on a Toon’s ip decal last weekend and no leaks or any dissolving brushes due to the solvent in Micro Set and Sol.
As they are intended for water, I think they are great for fixing pigments and maybe if a pigment fixer is fluid enough it will work too.:rolling:

HTH.
Thanks Fernando, I was thinking how the would work for applying a pin wash. All depends on the brush sizes I would think

An early delivery from postie
from the SMS......................329532329533
The AK Real Color paints are for a couple of RAF builds in the pipeline ( Revell 1/48 Beaufighter TF.X for one! ).
The Mig Ammo Decal Solutions ? - my bottle of Humbrol DecalFix is getting to the bottom ( I bought this from Amazon in July 2016 ), so I thought I'd try something new!
