COLOUR CREATION,
DEVELOPMENT AND
MANUFACTURING PROCESS
AK Interactive distinguishes by achieving accuracy in its col-
ours, this is our process for creating our paints.

1 CREATION
AK Interactive works and collaborates with
many people to achieve the most accurate col-
ours. From historians, military, and specialists
join forces with the modellers to find the most
exact pattern for each colour. The specialist
along with the artist/modeller search and study
the right shade for each colour or the paint can
be extracted directly from the original object
and paint it on a board which will be delivered
to the AK headquarters and the factory.

2 COLOUR DEVELOPMENT AND ADJUSTMENT

1 COLOUR SCAN
Our colours arrive in either of two ways,
the colour comes already painted and ap-
plied on a board or it comes in a jar which
we then apply over a board. From the
board we read it with a spectrophotom-
eter which gives us its coordinates and
colour curves.

AK INTERACTIVE / 4
2 CALIBRATING THE FORMULA
With our cutting-edge colour formulation software,
which has been previously calibrated and adjusted
to our raw materials, we start working to achieve the
desired colour. We input the necessary parameters
such as coverage, which pigments to use, etc.. This
way, the software gives us a formula to reproduce
the colour taking into account not only the overall
colour appearance, but its complete colour curve
and the different light effects such as daylight, in-
candescent, and fluorescent light.

3 MATCHING ACCURACY
We produce the suggested formula from the soft-
ware and apply it over a board to compare it with the
original pattern to see the slight differences. Usual-
ly, the software gives us a very close result to the
original, but not a perfect match. Once again, with
the spectrophotometer, we take the data of the new
colour and correct it with our software to adjust it to
the original pattern.

4 FINAL TEST
The normal process is to make two corrections over
the first input. Once ready, we send it to the person
responsible to get the approval and get it ready for
production.

3 MANUFACTURING
1 PRODUCTION
Once production starts, we make another test over
a board to check its coverage, quality and colour.
If for any reason there has been any change in the
parameters, we fix it until it is correct. We keep a
colour swatch of each colour manufactured.

2 QUALITY
This colour development and manufacturing proce-
dure is protected and audited under the ISO 9001
quality standard.

AK INTERACTIVE / 5
AT THE FACTORY
PAINT CREATION PROCESS
In AK Interactive, we want to show you how our paints are created in our
factory. The previous process is more complicated as colours have to be
1
tested over and over again until we achieve the proper and correct shade,
then the coloured chip is computer scanned in a special machine for
colorimetry to store the correct values.

Our paints are computer formulated, kept in files where it is stored the exact
amount of pigments and chemical composition for each colour. Once the
process begins to create a paint, the exact amount of each component is
placed mechanically (Fig. 1 and Fig 2.) in a container. Then is well mixed
during quite a long time, until the complete mix has certain kind of texture
and colour uniformity depending on the formula used (Fig. 3).

3
4 bottling
Now it comes the time to fill the bottle or jars, this process has to be controlled
carefully because any issue can cause the paint to vary its colour. Here we
can see our qualified workers looking after the whole process of bottling and
placing the lids.

AK INTERACTIVE / 6
5 labelling
Once the previous step has finished , all the bottles that have passed the
quality control are ready for labelling, here the proper labels previously
printed with the reference and barcode are glued to the jars.

6 Another
quality test
To make sure our products have the best quality we make a random
quality test over every batch. We take one of the jars for each batch
and test its consistency using brush and airbrush, as well for all those
products which are not acrylics, the process is the same but some
require further test over plastic painted pieces or whatever is needed
(Fig 6, Fig. 7).

8 stocking and boxing
Once all the quality processes have finished and we are satisfied with the
result, now is time to stock them properly and get them ready so they can
arrive properly to your homes.

AKRYLICS
AK Interactive has always distinguished itself by
the quality of its products. Our new generation
of acrylic paints is entirely developed in our own
laboratories which offers several advantages
and innovations that will help you to paint your
models both quickly and smoothly, either by
brush or by airbrush. We are proud to say that
we have no less than three different paint formu-
las on the market today.

AK INTERACTIVE / 8
1 3 DIFFERENT FORMULAS
1
Our basic line is especially designed for both airbrush and brush painting. These paints
don’t clog in the tip of the airbrush and are easily cleaned or thinned with water (although
we highly recommend our own Acrylic thinner). We care about your health and insist that
our paints are non-toxic and don’t produce harmful odours. They offer a light, smooth,
satin finish which is the ideal surface for further weathering. We have a wide range of
specific colours designed for the popular “modulation technique”, and also the correct
colours (RAL, FS, RLM) which are scaled for the best results. Other colours complete our
ever expanding catalogue, including the most popular current colours, for example col-
ours ideally suited for chipping and producing rust effects. We also of course produce a
range of standard colours.

2
We also produce a different formula for our figure series colours which are specially de-
signed for painting with a brush to produce a matte finish suitable for this genre. This
range is designed in co-operation with the best figure painters in Europe.

3
Finally, our last formula, is for our Air series. These paints have the perfect opacity and a
perfect satin finish. After research, the colours are altered for a scale reduction effect. The
colours for many countries in a variety of areas are researched by the most prestigious
historians such as Mr. Michael Ullmann and Mr. Nicholas Millman or Mr. Maciej Goralczyk.

AK INTERACTIVE / 9
2 OUR JARS
Distinguishing our acrylic colours is simple. The bottles
are our standard 17ml plastic bottles with a drip nozzle
for easy dispensing in to an airbrush cup. These bottles
are easy to store, ergonomic, and user-friendly. Only
our range of colours has the orange cap that guaran-
tees you the best paints exclusively made by AK Inter-
active. We now also have a black cap to distinguish Air
and Figure Series as well as white for our Naval series.
Our labels distinguish the paints for each line with the
code, the name, and the bar-code.

3 BRUSH AND AIRBRUSH


AK Interactive believes that no modellers should have to buy large amount of paints. So we set a
goal for our developers to design a paint that can be used both for brush painting and airbrush-
ing. In both cases, the opacity of the paint is excellent with a great ability to cover any surface.
Something that no other brand has legitimately achieved.

All of our paints are made up from a selection of top quality components with the result that they
only need to be shaken and they are ready to use. There’s no need to dilute the paints when you
decide to use your airbrush. When applied by brush they also have a greater degree of coverage.
In the case of our figure series, you can use them directly by brush and if you decide to load
these paints into your airbrush, you can easily dilute them by adding 40% of our acrylic thinner.

4 DILUTION
AND APPLYING
You can dilute our colours with tap water, although we recommend using our specific thinner for best
results.. Don’t forget that you can use our colours (label with brush& airbrush) directly from the bottle
without dilution. If you want the best results for the painting camouflage or thin lines, you can add a few
drops of our specific thinner, useful for all types of acrylics. The AK-712 thinner improves the perfor-
mance of the paint and is vastly superior when compared with most available thinners.

AK INTERACTIVE / 10
5 AKRYLIC SETS
We have separated our paint sets depending on our line of products. In the
future we will keep developing new lines with different characteristics to satisfy
the modeller’s needs.

EFFECTS SETS
These colours are the most accurate and authentic that a modeller can find. With these sets you can
get different effects in your models or paint special parts. Each colour serves to produce a different
goal or effect, e.g. for rust , rubber , wood , brass even our popular colour for chipping. On the boxes
you can see examples of how they can be used and also to serve as an inspiration for your models.

Modulation set Real colours set

Our modulation sets are specially designed for painting vehicles. They con-
tain a paint specially diluted to create the necessary transparency to paint a
model using this technique. Each set contains 6 colours for a soft transition
of colour in 1/35 or larger scales. You can use fewer colours for smaller
scales. On the back of the box, you can find a small guide with step by
step photos which tell you the steps that are needed to achieve the desired
results. The AFV series also has in its line the real colours. You can obtain
these colours separately or in sets or blisters. These colours are our special
and exclusive range as they have been developed and researched with great
care. They are our best product for the most demanding modellers. The dif-
ferent colours included in these sets are RAL colours, Federal Standard,

6 SCALE REDUCTION FACTOR
Only AK Interactive has managed to adapt authentic colours for models. For years, paint manufac-
turers have created colours without bearing this important factor in mind. A true colour reflects more
light the more surface it covers, resulting in a lighter colour, but the opposite happens when the area
covered is less.

Therefore, painting a full size tank and a model with the


same colour, gives an unpleasant effect, because the
small tank seems much darker, having less surface to
reflect light so that our eyes perceive the same colour
in a scaled tank as in a real one, we should use brighter A Example using Real

MODULATION
In this section we will take a brief look at what modulation is and what can do
for us, although there is a lot more information on how physical light works,
we have synthesized it to be easy and fast to understand for the modeller.

PHASE 1 UNDERSTANDING LIGHT


Modulation is a technique used to enhance and give volume to your model, to give as real appearance as the original object would have, all this using
the physical methods on how light works in the real world. Other techniques would be a fake as we have the best example, reality. With the aid of real
pictures and this short theory we can get our models to look amazing. For this tutorial we will apply this technique over a T-34 3D model obtained with
a physical based rendering engine showing how light would behave in the real world. To better explain how physical light works we split it into 2 ways
of understanding light: Indirect or Ambient Lighting and Direct Lighting:

INDIRECT LIGHTING Emitter source: Sun

Sky-dome

1
The first thing to understand about light is that
there has to be an emitter source and that it
bounces endlessly with a decay inversely pro-
portional to the square of the distance from the
source. Indirect light is the result of the light
bouncing everywhere, the best known of all indi- Indirect Lighting
rect or ambient light is the sky-dome:

MODULATION

This light bouncing causes an effect on


objects known as ambient occlusion.
Ambient occlusion means that objects
close to each other or from a corner an-
gle cause ambient shadows, darkening
the area. The opposite effect happens exposed areas exposed areas
occluded areas occluded areas
in the exposed or separated areas of
objects lighting the zones:

As you can observe, the difference is


huge. Models approach reality once
this technique is applied.

Plain primed model Modulated model

DIRECT LIGHTING Lamp Sun

As in indirect lighting or any kind of light emission, the first con-


sequence are shadows, which depends on the kind of emitter
which produces different results. Sun shadows are sharper and
with an almost straight shadow line as it comes from far away.
Man-made lights are closer and therefore its shadows spread
sooner and results in softer shadows. This is important when
thinking about how to light your model. In the following exam-
ples we will show you the results on the 3D model.
Human made lamp Directional, infinite light

ADVANCED FACT. RADIOSITY


Another thing to consider when painting, although it is a little more advanced, is radiosity, As light bounces everywhere it “picks” the colour where the
light ray hits and goes to the next place to impact the colour information by mixing the colour before impact and the one right after. This means if you
place a white cup on a red table, the bottom of the cup will be lit with red colour.

MODULATION

It is essential to apply a good layer of primer to fix the paint properly.


1 For this, the completely assembled model has been airbrushed with
AK175 Grey Primer slightly diluted with AK712 Acrylic thinner.
To apply the primer it is convenient to dilute it at 50% with its specific
acrylic thinner. This dilution will not only allow the paint to flow more
easily, but it will also give us better control over the airbrush as well as
prevent us from ruining the surface. It is always best to apply several
layers to cover a surface rather than trying to do it with just one layer.

1-5 We will start applying the colour AK029 Russian 4BO Shadow in the
shadow areas, trying not to cover too much of the surface. The shadow
area has to be very located. We will try to airbrush the paint from the
bottom to the top.

6-10 We will next apply the colour AK030 Russian 4BO Dark Base in the

painted with the previous colour and also spread the paint a bit more than
before. We will also airbrush it from below, but at a lesser angle.

11-15 Now, we will apply the vehicle’s base colour. For this, we will

both the bottom and the top, always avoiding to cover the previous
layers completely. It is convenient to start using masks to highlight

painted areas. The amplitude of the highlighted area will depend on the
characteristics of the model or the vehicle itself.

the surface on the horizontal areas of the vehicle, and at a stepper an-
gle than before on its vertical areas. We will reduce the amplitude of
the airbrushed areas with this tone in order to generate the maximum
highlight point on the vertical and sloped planes. Of course, the use of
masks is essential to achieve these effects.

as well as on the pieces that we want to highlight.

With this last step in the modulation process, by which we have obtained
a 3D effect, is really interesting on our vehicle. But this is not the end. We

start the weathering process, which is really the process that will provide
our model with character.

VARNISHES
WHAT ARE THEY
Varnish is a dilution of one or more resinous substances in a liquid thinner.
The air volatilizes this liquid, which dries due to evaporation, leaving a film
over the surface where it has been applied.

Many kinds of varnishes exist depending on the thinner or resin used for
their fabrication. Actually AK Interactive in its line of acrylic paints has 4
types of varnishes with an aquatic base which offers us the following finish-
es: ultra-matt (AK183), matt (AK775), satin (AK776) and glossy (AK777). All
of them are the best quality.

WHY USE THEM


Their main task is to protect and preserve the surface where they are applied
from the effect of atmospheric agents, such as dust as well as to provide
the surface with a better resistance for the subsequent painting processes,
which can be very aggressive in nature.
VARNISHES

HOW TO USE
To obtain a smooth and uniform finish, it is convenient to apply the varnish-
es with an airbrush and to prepare the surface properly; that is, free of dust
and grease. In order to have a clean atmosphere, we can spray some water
on the air so the water will capture all the dust particles and drop them.
When we airbrush it properly, we actually guarantee a continuous layer,
without imperfections, with an adequate and uniform thickness.

Even though the special formula of the ultra matt varnish


allows this varnish to be applied with a brush, thus
obtaining a good result, we can also use a
brush to apply the other products and var-
nish small details.

The varnishes can be applied direct-


ly from the jar or slightly diluted
with AK712 Thinner. To obtain the
best results, it is better to apply
several layers instead of trying
to apply just one heavy coat,
since it may put our model at
risk of ruining the surface and
the desired result.

WHEN TO USE
If we follow the painting and finishing process on any model, there will be If it is a civil model, we should use a satin or gloss varnish. Whereas, if it

The first of these moments happens after the use of the base layer and It is advisable to use varnish after the chipping process using the ref-

of varnish will depend on the model.
After this process it is convenient to varnish over the decals again to cre-
ate a film that will protect and definitively fix them, which will prevent them After the previous process, if we choose to apply oils to highlight the

case, the choice of the varnish will depend on the model. later on when we finish this process and when the oil is dry, it is recom-
mended to apply a layer of varnish to seal the work so it will not be affect-
ed by the enamels.

The use of varnishes before the washing process is also necessary. In


this case, regardless of the model, we must choose a gloss or satin finish,
never a matte one for the wash to run correctly. On the other hand. when
we apply a filter, it is convenient to do it on a matt surface so it spreads
with ease.

In addition to the three standard finishes, we have a huge amount of other


types of finishes according to how we mix the varnishes. We can deduct
gloss from the varnish by adding it satin or matte varnish, and we can
add gloss to a matte varnish by adding satin or gloss. It is just a matter of

VARNISHES
trying this until we find the desired finish. Some parts of the vehicle can
look matt and others may appear glossy.

From this point, it is the different weathering processes themselves and


the mediums (oils, enamels, pigments, acrylics...) and the way we use
them (filters, washes, weathering, dusting...) over our model which will
create different finishes on the different areas of the model. This richness
is something we want, so we should never, under any circumstances, use
a general varnish layer, which will unify the result, thus losing all its visual
richness.

included into the camouflage. This set includes 6 col-

PRECISE COLOURS

The Deutsche Afrika Korps vehicles wore four different RAL colours: 8000 and 7008 until
March of 1942 and RAL colours 8020 and 7008 after March of 1942. Additionally, the vehicles
were painted with a Panzer Grey RAL 7021 base that in many cases was exposed when the
paint camo was chipped and worn away. Finally, there is a discussion about the colour of the
Tiger I deployed in Tunisia, because some sources identified them as Olive Drab. However,
recent research identified the paint as RAL 8020 but in a more greenish shade than usual.
This set presents 6 colours to apply directly to your model without the need to make complex
paint mixtures or hours of deep research about the colours used by the DAK. Additionally,
these new colours are suitably modified to compensate for the scale effect in models. These
are accurate and real colours for lovers of precise paint.

XTREME METAL FEATURES

1 READY TO USE
Very easy to use with high opacity, and ultra realistic finish. Although you can
apply a primer first, it’s not necessary as this paint will NOT AFFECT THE
PLASTIC in any way as some other brands do.

We recommend only a primer when you use the two special colours: Chrome
and Polished aluminium that contain a special formula to obtain the mirror effect.
When dry you can polish these paints with a cotton cloth to achieve an even brighter
sheen. But keep in mind that adding a primer first will delay the drying time.

2 WEATHERING RESISTANT
The paint can handle any weathering process where other metallic paints fail, no matter
if you use alcohol, enamels or acrylics based products.
WEATHERING PRODUCTS

As example we spilled enamel based weathering products over the painted surface,
and just by whipping it off you see that the paint stays intact. Ready for the next phase.

EXACT COLOURS
HIGH SHEEN

Xtreme metal colours are true to nature as you can see in this titanium example of the real
metal and the colour applied over a plastic spoon. The high quality super fine pigments
have as result an ultra high sheen. When covered with a varnish the metallic effect can be
enhanced and sealed.

4 MASKING
It’s of course necessary to respect drying times before you start masking and want to avoid any
problems. We recommend you respect a drying time of 2 hours when the surface isn’t primed
and 6 hours when a primer is applied to let the paint harden thoroughly. The drying processes
of the particles need to be respected just as with any type of paints to have a smooth process

in the steps taken. In the following images you can see the process of masking, painting and
removing the mask or tape. Take a closer look at the final picture, the acrylic paint is removed
with the tip of a knife without damaging the Xtreme metal paint, AMAZING!!

pigments: how and why
Pigments are a good medium for any modeller. They can be used on
their own or in combination with other products. The different colours
can be mixed to achieve a greater variety in tone. It’s important to avoid
a uniform look on your model and pigments can be used to bring life to
your model with very convincing results. Over an enamel base pigments
can be used in combination with water or with White Spirit if a protective
varnish is applied. Over an acrylic base coat you can best use White
Spirit to handle the pigments. Once the pigments have dried the original
colour will reappear.

The steel pigment is a special designed pigment which can be used

to achieve realistic metallic effects on your model such as on edges


of metal parts.

applying methods
1 SINGLE
Pigments can be applied using a soft brush over a matt surface; this
will help to retain the pigment. Working this way has as advantage
that you can achieve a very subtle finish and create dust effects.
The excess pigments can be easily removed.

2 WHITE SPIRIT
With White Spirit you can apply pigments in all areas with a
realistic result.

AK INTERACTIVE / 100
3 FIXER & TEXTURIZERS
A high quality acrylic resin developed to mix with the
pigments to add textures and dries out completely matt.
Texturizer can be used to bring structure to terrains or on
desired areas of your model. Small fibers or real soil can
be added for stronger effects.

gloss varnish to the mix.

The pigments fixer is as the


word says designed to fix the
pigment in place on any surface.
It can be diluted with White Spirit
and applied before or after the
pigments are added to your
model. The fixer can darken a
little the pigment colour.

Another method is using the


airflow from your airbrush to blow
the mix on your model to create
splatter effects.

When we decided to launch the Modelling Full Ahead project, we were aware that in an eighty page publi-
cation it was possible to condense the information needed to build a specific warship. But as modelling is
evolving nowadays with it’s curiosity, techniques, innovation, history, and certainly everything that pushes us
to build a scale model, this cannot only be achieved with a monographic series.
Baring this is mind and in response to the multitude of suggestions we received, we offer you a parallel to the
monographs series. In this special issue we will deal with difficulties that may occur to you during the building
stages , such as working with photo-etch, advanced painting, scratch-building, diorama composition, etc..

modeller in either an operational or factory fresh appearance, and again as a destroyed, abandoned,
or museum/monument exhibited vehicle. A truly unique approach for the vehicle modeller. With this
approach, we can bring you articles on the same model, but with entirely different techniques em-
ployed, or used in a different manner. Of course, you will be able to translate these techniques to other
eras and different vehicles. 4×2 has more than 130 pages, detailed step-by-step process descriptions

artists through a journey from a model to real life. Divided in step-by step articles showing you well known
