Aotake Interior Primer



National Service

IJA Aircraft & IJN Aircraft




Please Note: As with the real Aotake, this product is a translucent blue-green coating. The real Aotake was applied over bare metal as a protective phenolic resin lacquer. Colourcoats ACJ15 should be applied over an aluminium undercoat, such as C05.

Typical practise in Japanese aircraft manufacture appears to have been to apply a protective coat of this primer upon completion of parts, with subsequent coats upon completion of sub-assemblies. Thus, there were not only variances between precise batch colours but also variances in how the final aircraft interior looked as everything ultimately received different numbers of coats of a translucent primer! It would not have a uniform appearance inside any given aircraft, so it is quite ok to experiment with different effects on your model. You can even tint your Aotake with a drop of green or blue to expand the effects throughout the model - not too much though or the coating will become too opaque.

The animated GIF product listing shows how ACJ15 looks on a white base to the left and on an aluminium base to the right.

** Colour renders given above are for guidance only - differences in colour space models for physical paints versus illuminated pixels on screen and limitations of conversions between models means that what you see on your screen cannot be used for colour matching purposes. An accurate colour can be found sprayed on each tin lid and within the tin. **

Colourcoats are available in 30ml as standard. 125ml or larger quantities are available on request.

Solid pigments and flattening agent will tend to separate from the carrier solvent if sat still for long periods of time, so we strongly recommend thorough mixing before use.

Colourcoats can be sprayed with a suitable airbrush or brush painted. When brush painting multiple thinned coats are recommended with sable brushes.

The recommended thinner is Colourcoats Thinners specially formulated for superior drying times and reduced odour. If necessary Colourcoats can be thinned with  standard quality solvent thinners or cellulose thinners for rapid drying.
