Vallejo Metal Colour - Exhaust Manifold
Metal Color is the innovative range of metallic colors with a water-based formulation, which uses aluminium pigments in its production. The Metal Color range offers a wide range of shades in order to imitate the metallic finish of aircraft of all types and eras. Of exceptional brightness and extraordinary power of reflection, it allows the modeler to carry out the full range of painting techniques without the need to resort to enamels and lacquers. It can be applied directly to the model using an airbrush or diluted with an Airbrush Thinner or Flow Improver.
Metal Color dries very quickly, maintaining the smallest details present on the model and forming a homogeneous and self-leveling layer of extraordinary resistance a few hours after application. Metal Color can be tinted directly in the airbrush cup using colors from the Model Air or Game Air ranges. It can also be applied with a brush. Recommended compressor settings are around 15-20 Psi or 0.5-1 kg. It is advisable, in the case of airframes and aircraft model components, to apply Gloss Black Primer, to enhance the special characteristics of the aluminium shades.
Metal Color dries very quickly, but it is advisable to wait 12 hours after application before applying any paint masks. For proper maintenance of the airbrush, we recommend using Airbrush Cleaner.
Available in 32 ml/1.08 fl oz bottles with a hinged cap and eyedropper closure. Includes stainless steel stirring ball to improve paint mixing.
Metal Color is not flammable, and does not contain solvents.
