An unusual entrant in the Accessory Reviews column, Revell has released the first colours in its new range of acrylic paint – Aqua Color. The paint comes in square-section pots that are very stable in use. The lids, which open and close by an ingenious method that works very well once you’ve opened a couple, are easy to lay flat on the workbench, paint side up, to prevent unnecessary mess. The first colours into which the editorial brush has been dipped are 36104 Gloss White, 36108 Matt Black, 36112 Gloss Yellow, 36156 Matt Blue and 36185 Matt Brown. Initial impressions are that after a thorough mixing these paints go on very well, with good opacity being displayed, even by the yellow. The finished work dries very quickly and clean up, of brushes at least, uses plain water. Revell intends to go through its Email Color range of enamels, repeating all of the colours available there in the Aqua Color range. So far Scale Aircraft Modelling has only tried brush painting with Aqua Color, but expect further impressions to appear in various builds in the future. Aqua Color is sold in 18 ml containers and, in the UK, cost a very reasonable £1.39 per pot.
