Does anyone know of a retailer within the UK that sells the Russian Manufactured paints by a company called AKAM.
They appear to do some interesting sets, however all the suppliers I have seen on line have up the "out of stock" signs.

I picked up one of these sets on eBay. Very convenient to get all the colors in one package instead hunting all over for those unique colors. I have only used the white so far and had no problems with it. There are many sets available on eBay.

Neil,
these paints are available by mail order from:
www.coastalcraftmodelsuk.com who provide a great service and good advice. They are based in a village near Barnsley in South Yorkshire.
Hope this helps!

Well have got a couple of sets now and have had a chance to use them with brush & also airbrush.
The quality of finish is as good as any.
