Vallejo presents AFV Painting System

Color Modulation is a technique of painting models that in the last years earned a great popularity among the modelers. 
The goal of the Color Modulation is to represent how the model should look in the real word, under real light, with the soft alternance of different shades of the same color.

To achieve this effect, the modelers can make their own mix of colors; or use a ready set like these offered by Vallejo.
The application of a series of base colors in half and quarter tones, in a gradual change from one sade to another, is very easy with these colors.
These effects of light and shadow, contrast and volume, will give the scale model an authentic and realistic appearance.

4 different sets are available:
AFV Dunkelgrau
AFV Dunkelgelb
US Army Olive Drab
AFV Russian Green 4BO
