Vallejo Dark Aluminum Substitute.
Posted by Toy Soldier Lover on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 5:36 PM

What model paint would be a great substitute for the Vallejo Dark Aluminum model paint? I'm considering getting a Squadron Models Haunebu II Premium Edition kit, and I need to find a good substitute for Vallejo Dark Aluminum, since I can't find any online store that would ship to me in time for Christmas. So yeah, what model paint would be great to substitute for the specific paint I'm looking for?

I did a quick search on ebay, and found the Vallejo Dark Aluminum "Metal Color" paint for sale from a merchant called "hobby-titan" with an estimated delivery date of Dec. 14. Is that what you are looking for?

Testors Steel enamel is pretty neutral in  color, but darker by a bit than their aluminum.  You might look at that.
