New Model Color Paints & Racks — Vallejo

New Model Color Paints & Racks — Vallejo

Vallejo is introducing the new Model Color, the range that sets the standard for all figure- and model-kits-painting enthusiasts, now improved to remain your favorite paint! They have introduced a new formulation that will surprise you with its amazing brushability, excellent opacity, and superb matt finish.

Colors dry quickly, forming a homogeneous and self-leveling film that respects the smallest detail present in your model. They recommend applying them on a previously primed surface. Vallejo has updated the range, offering you 32 new colors so that you can find the color you need for your creative projects. You will also find equivalent shades to the main colors used in military codifications during WWII and subsequent conflicts (RAL, RLM, FS…). Throughout this process, Vallejo has been advised by renowned painters and modelers who have helped them design the colors of the range so that you have the exact tone to paint your figures and models.

As for the image, you will find a new display with renewed graphics, a new label, and the new 18 ml r-PET (recycled/recyclable) bottle, completely transparent. Additionally, they have arranged the display chromatically, based on the Vallejo BSL (Base, Shade, Light) painting system, allowing you to easily locate the appropriate tones for highlighting and shading a specific base color. The majority of colors from the original range have been maintained, with the same name and reference number. Your favorite colors still exist!

And if you’re wondering if the new Model Color is the same as before, the answer is no: It’s not the same, it’s better!

Metallics — The metallic colors have been reformulated to improve their opacity, fluidity, and self-leveling properties. They spread very easily, and Vallejo has used new metallic pigments with ultrafine particles that provide a very realistic finish. Two transparent colors are maintained, which are optimal for shading and modifying the tones of your metallics.

Auxiliary Products — In the Model Color display, you will find different auxiliary products that allow you to modify the properties of Vallejo’s colors. You will also find varnishes to unify the finish of your figures or models. If you want to use Model Color with an airbrush, you can use Airbrush Thinner or Flow Improver by diluting the color with the recommended ratio. For masking processes, they offer Liquid Mask, and you can also use their Plastic Putty to fix fitting defects. If you want to add decals to your model, they have Decal Fixer and Decal Softener for this purpose.

Liquid Metal — This line features 8 metallic colors formulated with isopropyl alcohol, which stand out for offering an exceptionally realistic finish. They dry quickly and can be mixed together to obtain different shades. Vallejo recommends using IPA-type alcohol to dilute it—and also for cleaning brushes or the  airbrush. Presentation: In 35 ml/1.18 fl oz bottles with a safety cap.
