Hataka Hobby have announced their first set of acrylic armour paints, building on the growing popularity of their initial aircraft colours. Also new is Hataka's own formula thinners, specially designed for their fast expanding range of high quality acrylic paints.
HTK-AS11 “Early WW2 Polish Army paint set”
"The set covers standard colours used on Polish Army vehicles used from 1936 till September 1939 campaign. Four colours included would allow for painting of standard three-colour camouflage of Polish fighting vehicles (incl. on TKS tankettes, Vickers E, 7TP, Renault R-35 and Hotchkiss H-35 tanks) according to the standard presented by Museum of Polish Army on the recently restored items, as well as a standard Khaki Green paint used on various supporting vehicles. The set contains:

HTK-A085 - Polish AFV Khaki Green - Overall colour of Polish Army utility and artillery vehicles (including Ursus A trucks and Fiat personnel carriers)
HTK-A086 - Polish AFV Greyish Sand - Used in Polish Army three-colour camouflage pattern. Standard colour of AFV interiors at the beginning of WW2
HTK-A087 - Polish AFV Dark Brown - Used in three-colour camouflage pattern (incl. on TKS tankettes, Vickers E, 7TP, Renault R-35 and Hotchkiss H-35 tanks)
HTK-A088 - Polish AFV Green - Base colour in three-colour camouflage pattern of Polish Army fighting vehicles after 1936

Hataka Hobby Acrylic Thinner
Apart from the above sets the long awaited Hataka Hobby Acrylic Thinner is also available. The thinner was formulated and tested to achieve the best result working with Hataka Hobby paints. Due to its composition it allows for dilution of Hataka Hobby paints without loss of adhesion and improves flow through airbrush. The thinner is available in 100 ml bottles."

Oh, great stuff, I wonder what will be the price...........

Andrzej, You should know before the rest of the world! This is distributed by Jadar Hobby right there in Warsaw. It's a 4 paint set, so the price will be 40.00 PLN (12 USD).

I'm VERY glad to see new color sets, but are there any readily-available AFVs to put these colors on?

Plenty of RPM and Mirage kits to be found on ebay. Kimmo

Are they any good?

Think Zvezda. Some a bit basic but not bad, especially considering how cheap you can pick them up. I guess it all boils down to how much time and aftermarket you want to invest in them. There is also the neat factor of stuff that nobody else does. You could also re-work some of the Hobby Boss T-26s, but after just having done one, I'm not sure I'd recommend them as an alternative.

So, the three-color scheme camouflage shown on the Hataka box for the Polish tank in 1939 looks awfully similar to German three-color AFV camo introduced in 1943, color-wise anyway. Coincidence? Hmmm. I'm just sayin'. Scott
