C'mon Cookie - quit sugar coating it, and tell us how you

feel!
What I am curious about is whether or not you have seen the
"Lifecolor" Soviet WWII Army color set? The 4BO seems to be way
too yellow for what I understand the color to be - it looks more
like old grainy/German mustard that it does a green color.

Bruce,
Not yet -- haven't had a chance to pick up the set but have heard the same from other folks as well.
The two best ones I have seen so far are the one from AKAN which is a Russian company and ModelMakerZ from the US. Both are acrylics.

They also have a white primer, which is interesting. It is bad enough to get yellow to cover anything to start with...

Thanks for the information, I should have checked it out myself, had never heard of it before.
