AK Real Colors being phased out and reformulated and put in to squeeze bottles?

has any one heard of AK real colors being phased out or reformulated?

Is AK discontinuing its Real Color range? - General Discussions / General Painting - KitMaker Network

He’s been huffing Tamiya Extra Thin like you should be doing, pal.

I do lines of powdered putty. Tamiya Extra Thin is weak.

Seriously though, there is some reformulation going on but for the most part it is just moving everything under the 3rd Gen banner and drop bottles all around. I guess that’s okay – especially for airbrushing – but I do like the jars and they’re more reusable than little plastic bottles. I have a set of 3G skin tones and they work as well if not maybe better (IMO) than the 2nd Gen stuff.

If you need a color now and can find it go ahead and get it as it may take a bit before the new stuff heads out.

Stock on as much REAL COLOR you can get before the paints get reformulated.

That’s what I’m doing. :wink:

I need more Dunkelgelb and Panzergrau but my LHS is out (missing about half the display rack actually) and my online go-to Michigan Toy Soldier is also out. They have the sets but I already have a bunch of green and red-brown.

I’ve actually reverted to my Tamiya Dark Yellow to save the AK for my nicer builds.
