i have an aoshima Lamborghini kit..what does this paint "code" mean?


Recommended Posts

some of the parts say to paint it "PH A" and i cant find anywhere in the book what ph A means. i mean the normal colors say "ph 12" or whatever, with the number corresponding to a certain paint color on the chart in the manual. well, theres no "ph a" in my chart..

They're not in the chart, but you can find the mixes for them described on the instructions (IIRC two are on the body painting and decalling three-view, and the other on the first stage where you use it), which you then have to decode by looking at the components of the mix on the chart. Usually one's a semi-gloss black made by mixing black and gloss clear, and one's their "carbon" mix, which is half and half black and steel grey. I don't mix them according to the recipe -- I just figure out what they're meant to be and use appropriate paint I have on hand to achieve the effect they are after...

bestest,

M.
