This paint is not sold in the U.S.A.–but it is widely available in Europe. We shall call it PERFECT.
I dug out my old bottle of Revell Aqua Color dark green. It hadn’t been opened in years. When I unscrewed the cap, I found the dreaded sight of a paint that had almost gone “solid.” A big chunk of solid paint-stuff filled the bottle. So thick I could have pried it out and sliced it into slices. I thought “that’s that–no way will this paint come back.”
Then I added some water and began to stir. I didn’t expect much….but the more I stirred and the more water I added, the more I thought I was witnessing a miracle. The paint came back. Like an old enamel, left to dry out in the tin, the Revell ACRYLIC came back and turned into usable paint with the addition of some water and a lot of stirring.
Perfect finish. Perfect adhesion. AND it can be brought back from the dead by stirring in water. It’s a miracle. Revell USA, now that they own Revell Germany, will have something to answer for on judgment day if they don’t import this magical paint.
The packaging is not what it should be. If it were in a Tamiya-style bottle it would be perfect. I mean that. PERFECT. It does everything well. I was lucky to obtain two colors from a friend in Europe. It makes the Amerikaner paint look dumpkopf. It makes all other paints look dumpkopf. Don’t be a dumpkopf. If you can get some of this paint, try it and find out what good acrylic paint is like. Then compare it to laughable Vallejo Model Color. Then sleep like a baby, knowing that you have found paint Nirvana.
