Fifty years of loving cars and forty plus years tinkering with cars - I laughed so hard at the color names in this product, I had tears in my eyes.
Aged Copper - WTF? Is that supposed to be their color for the Magnesium colored parts?
Perfect color names for SteamPunk & Clockwork models for sure. When was the last time a car or truck had an IRON frame work? 1894 or 1910?
I hope the colors are useful because the names are terrible.
- UA 7001 Weathered Steel
- UA 7002 Framework Iron
- UA 7003 Cast Iron
- UA 7004 Piston Engine Block
- UA 7005 Burned Pipes
- UA 7006 Aged Copper
Given how the majority of passenger vehicle engine blocks/cylinder cases and practically all cylinders heads have been aluminum for the last twenty plus years it’s amazing they have 3 IRON & STEEL colors and nothing listed for Aluminum. Even less steel and iron in the high performance engines.
Even in primative American Hot Rodding we use aluminum blocks & cylinder heads now days We paint the cast iron blocks usually too vs leaving the iron exposed when dealing with cast iron cylinder blocks/Piston cases.
Let’s see…if we can make up some better more interesting names…I like Life Color they are A++ all in all

UA 7004 Piston Engine Block - Piston Case/Engine Block
UA 7005 Burned Pipes - Discolored Exhaust
UA 7006 Aged Copper - Anodized Magnesium
