This acrylic paint, made by Vallejo, is designed for painting second world war and similar military paint schemes on miniature wargaming models. This paint bottle is one of the selected colours used by Battlefront Miniatures to make up their Flames Of War paint sets, although it is also ideal for Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 models, made by Games Workshop. Vallejo is a specialist acrylic paint company based in Spain who have been manufacturing paint for the hobby and wargaming markets since 1965.
The colors are supplied in 17ml plastic bottles with eyedropper.
The formula contains a new acrylic resin with properties until now impossible to obtain in a waterbased acrylic. The resistence, hardness and covering power of Model Air is superior to any know acrylic for airbrushing. The pigments used for airbrush colours need to be ground to the finest possible consistency to avoid obstruction of the airbrush valves. The revolutionary milling process of the pigments used in the Model Air formula gives the modelpainter technical assurance and finest texture when applying the colours to the model, and produces a very superior quality when applying the colours with a brush for miniscule details, for washes and transparencies and layered application of diluted glazes. Colours can be mixed with water,Model Air Thinner or Varnish, according to the effect desired, but we recommend the use of Model Air Thinner since this product conserves the properties of the colours. Model Air adheres exceptionally well to all surfaces. The adhesion of Model Air to resin models, plastic, steel and white metal is extraordinary. Once protected with varnish, (Gloss,Matte or Satin) Model Air can be overpainted with solvent based enamels or oil colours: they withstand cleaning with turpentine and even a light wash with alcohol. The resistance to abrasion of the colours, once varnished is superior to any other waterbased acrylic. Model Air is presented in a 17ml. bottle with eyedropper. This packaging prevents the paint from evaporating and drying in the container.

Battlegroup Torch Harback Supplement for Battlegroup WW2 rules system -North Africa 1942-43
EGYPT, 1942... After defeat at the Battle of Gazala, the British 8th Army has been chased back through the western deserts, fighting a rearguard action to hold the line near a railway halt called El Alamein. Here, the tide of the desert war would turn decisively in the British’s favour. At El Alamein Rommel’s weary army was repeatedly defeated and forced into a very long retreat to save itself. Meanwhile, American and British troops land on the shores of Morocco and Algeria in Operation Torch, with the plan to cut-off the Germans by capturing Tunisia. A hard seven-month campaign would follow in the final struggle to capture North Africa.
• BACKGROUND A general overview of the later North Africa campaign, from Gazala, through three battles at El Alamein to Operation Torch and the Allies’ attack into Tunisia. With British, American and French forces of 1st Army in the north and 8th Army pursuing Rommel’s Panzer Armee Afrika to the Mareth Line, and then beyond, in the south. This book covers the desert fighting from May 1942 to May 1943 and the Axis’ ultimate surrender in Tunisia.
• ARMY LISTS Nine army lists designed to be played with the character of the principal combatants for North Africa: the veteran Deutsche Afrikakorps for 1942 and Defenders of Tunisia for 1943, Italian armoured and infantry divisions to face British (and Commonwealth) armoured and infantry divisions. Also, for Tunisia, the first combat operations for the US 1st Armoured Division and US infantry divisions, as well as ex-Vichy French ‘March’ divisions, now turned against their former Axis allies.
• SPECIAL RULES New special rules to adapt the core Battlegroup rules to the later North African battlefields. Recreating the character of desert fighting, with its dusty conditions, reliance on tank warfare and mobile formations, and the wearing effects of the harsh conditions. Also rules for the colder, muddy, difficult hill-country of northern Tunisia, a very different type of battlefield, all helping to create games with the distinctive feel for the end of the ‘desert’ war.
