Vallejo Model Air
Save on Vallejo Model Air Paint at TheWarStore!
Vallejo Model Air is a range of liquid acrylic colors developed especially for hobby airbrushing techniques, made with very finely ground pigments and an acrylic resin known for durability.
The formula contains a new acrylic resin with properties until now impossible to obtain in a water based acrylic. The resistance to abrasion, hardness and covering power of Model Air is superior to any known acrylic for airbrushing.
The pigments used for airbrush colors need to be ground to the finest possible consistency to avoid obstruction of the airbrush valves. The revolutionary milling process of the pigments used in the Model Air formula gives the model painter technical assurance and the finest texture when applying the colors to the model, and produces a very superior quality when applying the colors with a brush for minuscule details, for washes and transparencies and layered application of diluted glazes.

Vallejo Model Air Colors can be mixed with one another, diluted with water, thinner or Varnish, according to the effect desired, but we recommend the use of Model Air Thinner since this product conserves the properties of the colors. 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 over painted with solvent based enamels or oil colors: the colors withstand cleaning with turpentine and even a light wash with alcohol. The resistance to abrasion of the colors, once varnished, is superior to any other water based acrylic.
Vallejo Model Air is presented in a 17 ml. bottle with eyedropper. This packaging prevents the paint from evaporating and drying in the container.
