For a long time our client friends asked us what paints and colors to use to paint their Artesania Latina naval scale models. That fact was a big annoyance for the modelers. We have solved the problem! We already have an extensive and varied catalog of specific sets of paints for model ships. Made of acrylic and water-based paints with an excellent quality, and most importantly, quick-drying. They can be applied both with airbrush -we recommend it- as with brush. The existing colors are presented in 20 ml jars.
When you want to undertake new naval modeling, you can also purchase the precise model ship paints you need for those faithful miniature replicas. Goodbye to the headaches of having to check what the original colors were in official documents. You will not be forced to search the Internet for a page that faithfully reflects this data. Directly, in the same product sheet of the naval model that you are going to build, you will find the link that takes you to the specific paintings that your scale model requires. On the other hand, if you are on our website and go to the ‘Finishing’ section and its subsection ‘Paints and Finishing Sets‘ you will directly see all the paints for model ships that we offer. Below, we begin to break down what they all are so you can get to know them.
