Blood Red Skies: Vallejo Paint Sets Japanese

These Vallejo paint sets for Japanese WW2 aircraft give you an extremely accurate palette for your Blood Red Skies squadrons.

Vallejo Paint Sets: Japanese Aircraft

Vallejo Model Air is pre-thinned for application by airbrush, although depending on your setup you may find you need to add a little thinner or flow improver. With pigments that are ground more finely than most paints, they are also the perfect blend for modellers who prefer to brush paint.
