Starter Paint Pack Includes:

5 x 17ml Vallejo model paints. Vallejo paints are supplied in plastic bottles of 17ml with an eyedropper device which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills. The model color range has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. 

Please note: The paint packs offered are only our suggestion from the box art and will not match directly with the instructions found within the kit.


You will also require the Carson 2 channel RC pack with batteries and charger (sold separately) :
