WEM 1/200 Sovremenny (PE 2001)
Two large sheets in different thicknesses to turn your model into a show-winner. Designed for the Trumpeter kit. See also our replacement turrets, PRO 2001, and take a look at Lim Kian Seng's stunning build of the kit using WEM PE at http://steelnavy.com/TrumpeterSovremennyLKS.htm INDEPENDENT REVIEW
Includes 2 sheets, with one sheet thicker than the other to provide details in various degrees of fineness relating to the size of the structure being modelled. The finer sheet is A4 size. The second, thicker sheet is 2/3 A4 size. Every possible detail we could think of is crammed into these two sheets (we have CD's full of "official" photos and drawings of the Soviet Fleet that we have been working from), and you will find extremely fine relief etching throughout our computer-aided designs. You will find that the instructions supplied will require no impossible-to-find extra reference material to be acquired by the modeller.

Paint and thinners classify as flammable liquid and can only be sent via our specialised contract to Mainland Great Britian as they are dangerous goods. The cost of this is rather high per parcel so we have a minimum paint/thinners order of 6 tins/bottles to allow us to reduce the postage cost to our customers.
The minimum order is 6 tins of paint or bottles of thinners or a combination of both. 1 bottle of thinners counts as 1 tin. The paint can be a combination of any colour and tins within coloursets count as individual tins. If you require any help with this please contact us.
We can send out orders of less than 6 tins/bottles but they incur the full postage charge of £13 per shipment. Please contact us if you wish to order less than the minimum.
Parcelforce48 (for paint & thinners) 6 tin minimum - £6.50.

We advised that you ensure to purchase enough paint to complete the model to maintain accuracy. Whilst we do everything in our power to ensure consistancy between batches using real people and not machine, we are also carrying out constant improvement of our range and colour accuracy. As such we do make changes to colours when new information shows a discrepancies in our range. This allows us to carry the most accurate and authentic paint range. Therefore we advise that you ensure to order enough paint to complete the model, especially when building larger scale kits.
Colourcoats paints are either a matt or satin finish (each paint is detailed on the listing). Satin finishes allows decals to often be applied directly to the colour without need for a gloss varnish to avoid backing film silvering, whilst avoiding the excessive drying times and difficulties in getting an even coat when working with gloss paints. This also means Colourcoats is very quick drying for application of multiple coats/varnishes compared to gloss enamels. Colourcoats is also highly opaque meaning that a single coat is often sufficient coverage. It can be sprayed with a suitable airbrush or brush painted. When brush painting multiple thinned coats are recommended with sable brushes.
If necessary Colourcoats can be thinned with either the standard quality solvent thinners - White Spirit in the UK/ Paint Thinners in the USA, or cellulose thinners/ lacquer thinners in the USA for rapid drying. The recommended thinner however is Colourcoats Thinners, a specially formulated enamel thinner which combines the drying times of cellulose, far less odour than either type of general purpose thinner, very good paint adhesion without softening plastic and is fully compatible with Colourcoats paint long term - meaning you can return unused thinned paint to the tin for long term storage. Sovereign Hobbies Ltd takes no responsibility for performance or storage issues where thinners other than Colourcoats Thinners are used, because obviously we have no control over what the end user chooses to add and we cannot product test with every random liquid someone may add to Colourcoats paint.
Solid pigments will tend to separate from the carrier solvent if sat still for long periods of time, so we strongly recommend thorough mixing before use.
