LifeColor German WWII Tanks Set 1 (22ml x 6)

The most accurate way to finish your model, 'lifecolor' sets are matched to the exact paint shades used on the real vehicles.  When thinned these acrylics will airbrush beautifully laying down thin coats quickly, used with a conventional brush 'lifecolor' goes on thinly so no detail is lost but light colours will need the application of two coats. The thin consistency means brush marks are almost non-existent. The German set illustrated above has RAL colours, with the designation as used by the Reich Ministry when ordering the employment of colour schemes on German vehicles.  

German WWII Tank set 1 includes:

  • UA 201 Gelbbraun RAL 8020
  • UA 202 Sandgrau RAL 7027
  • UA 203 Grunbraun/Gelbbraun RAL 8000
  • UA 204 Dunkelgelb RAL 7028
  • UA 205 Rotbraun/Schokoladen Braun RAL 8017
  • UA 206 Olivgrun RAL 6003

Other sets use colours matched to FS numbers- Federal standard, the US paint colour designation.

LifeColor NATO MERDC Set (22ml x 6)

This set  is ideal for modern NATO vehicles and includes:

  • UA 301 Black FS 37030
  • UA 302 Brown FS 30051

I've always been cautious about low priced Airbrush set ups but after testing the EXPO set for a while and getting good results I am happy to offer these sets along side our IWATA items. For £79.95 you get everything you need except paint and thinner to get you started. Read a full review on Kitmaker Net by clicking the review link below.

Expo Airbrush Review


Some modelers love assembling individual track links, others hate it and would rather replace with Vinyl.  SMC can offer help with both as we have an extensive range of both individual plastic replacement tracks and replacement Vinyl band track too.



A recent article on Armorama focusing on the excellent Great North Roads (GNR) plaster diorama buildings that are stocked but SMC. These heavy items are available on line, but incur steep postage prices due to weight.
