Newsletter 438: Italian red

Italian red

Italian red
The world of colors is really complex. And if we are talking about colors for our scale models, things get even more complicated. Some years ago, only Italian Red existed and little else in scale modeling color charts, and with that tone all Ferraris, all Alfa Romeos, all Porsches, all Ducatis were painted... We saw endless rivers or Italian red at scale modeling shows.

But in the real world there is the Corsa 300 red, the Alfa Romeo Rosso red, the Guards red, the DUC01 red... Luckily, for some years now and to the joy of many of us, Zero Paints has offered us a really extensive automotive color chart, tightly adapted to our favourite hobby. Now the guys at Streetblisters stepped up and begun to manufacture their own range of paints and accessories, served in 30ml bottles so they can be shipped worldwide, prethinned to be used directly with your airbrush, and with very interesting color chart which they promised us will grow even more. At this moment, they have given a thorough check to the Ferrari color chart and also prepared the tones for different variants of the Peugeot 306 Maxi that is just about to arrive in Europe imminently.

And an interesting note: do you need a color tone and you can't find it or it doesn't exist? Streetblisters welcomes new color suggestions for their color chart!!!

Dust off your airbrush, at SpotModel we have the color for every taste :)
