Having some time this afternoon, I've tried the AK Real Colors.
Here are the paints I will use for my Yak. I started with the PC319 Interior Steel Gray.
I diluted the paint with AK thinner for real Colors at a rate of 50/50 and airbrushed with my Evolution.

...Well guys, it was a real pleasure!!!
Paint is very nice, comes homogeneously, no "blotches", thin, fast drying and the airbrush wasn't obturated by the paint at all.
For a first try, I'm really happy.

...The only thing is that I 've forgotten to paint the canopy frame  :))
Mistake will be corrected soon ;)

I have made a little bit of weathering; then I used for the first time "Future" as gloss varnish - a bottle bought some years ago during an expo; never used until today... Easy to use (no dilution needed) and good result. Better than Pébéo varnish when weather is hot as actually...  :))
After that Tamiya black Panel Liner and, for the instrument panel, use of the decal furnished on the decal sheet by Eduard

Putty was used then sanded and the wheel traps are repainted because my use of Tamiya panel liner was not good at all at this location...
