New Luftwaffe paints
Even after few decades of intensive work on Luftwaffe subject, there I think about many of books and magazines, some paints are stay still unreachable for the wide modelers use. In general all main Luftwaffe camouflage and markings colors are covered by various manufacturers so there was not problem at all to get it. There was available either as acryl or enamel paints and there was always various level of authentic of paints, depending of the source for the paint. Problem is about some another colors, used limited by the end of war, color used for basic protection as well non military paints.
Final and excellent reply in this area coming from White Ensign. White Ensign is well know specialist name in the field of modeling colors and we have pleasure before to present some of their colors.

Colors are excellent in all means of this term! First at all al shades are correct in regard to the all available documentation I was able to get for reference. Second- they are work well and excellent flown through small airbrush nozzle. I did not try to hand brush wide areas but they also work very good for small parts where I have made some brush stroke.
What to say- this is something which you should not miss!! Limited edition, quality production, all say that you should have this set.
