Nice one Si.

Just like to add that on the back of the boxes these paint sets come in, Lifecolor list paints within their range that either match or are very close to other RN colours not in the sets.

Thanks Luciano,

That did slip my mind when I was writing up the review.

Appreciate you filling the gap.

Cheers mate.

No problem Si, I have now got the extra paints Lifecolor recommend just need to mark up the pots so I know what they're for.

Be careful as Lifecolor paints can be cantankerous. Read up on lots of stuff before you use them for airbrushing. They are fine for brush painting.

No problem Warren, I've been using Lifecolor for several years and if airbrushing they must be thinned a bit and a few drops of retarder added then they behave ok.
