Hataka Hobby have sent us details of their latest AFV paints. The four-bottle set is designed to produce a variety of winter camouflage effects.
HTK-AS38 “German AFV Winter Camo | 2 in 1”

Fierce fighting on the eastern front during 1941/42 winter created an urgent demand for temporary winter camouflaging the German AFVs.

For those willing to imitate a freshly applied winter camo the set contains a base paint HTK-A101 Traffic White and HTK-A164 Panzer Dunkelgrau Base for chipping / scratching. To achieve an effect of heavily weathered temporary winter coat the set offers HTK-A164 Panzer Dunkelgrau Base, HTK-XP02 Paint Exfoliation Activator and HTK-A153 Temporary White.

The set contains:
· HTK-A101 - Traffic White (RAL 9016) - Standard white paint used to achieve an effect of freshly applied winter camouflage on all types of German military vehicles
· HTK-A164 - Panzer Dunkelgrau Base - Dunkelgrau No. 46. Used from mid-1937. From mid-1940 till early 1943 a standard base colour of majority of German AFVs
· HTK-XP02 - Paint Exfoliation Activator - A dedicated odourless medium used to activate the HTK-A153 Temporary White paint for controlled removal technique
· HTK-A153 – MK-7 Temporary White - A paint with special formula designed for use with HTK-XP02 Paint Exfoliation Activator for controlled removal technique.

The so-called "hairspray technique" in a kit. This will be very helpful to beginning and intermediate modelers.

Looks like a nice set! I like the activator to take the white off. Very innovative.

"Paint exfoliation activator" - that's what my daughter calls nail varnish remover... Seriously, looks good fun though, I certainly like their painted examples.
