Ever since the demise of Aeromaster's paint line, most of us have been looking for decent Japanese colors in enamels. While other makers produce some of these colors, this is the first time we have had a rather complete run of colors. Colourcoat has even added Amerio to the line-up, which is a nice improvement. The only other colors that they could add to the mix would be the 'bamboo', a yellow-orange wing ID color, a trainer orange, and Kawasaki interior brown, but finding reliable references is a bit of a problem when it comes to Japanese colors. Perhaps one day in the future these will be added. As with all Colourcoats, most are semi-gloss for good coverage and ease of decal application.
