The bundle contains proprietary slow curing, high solids adhesive and high purity sieved texturing material (aggregate). The application process is similar to real life ant-slip creation procedure.


"Standard" type is used to create even aggregate based anti-slip patterns. Standard type reacts with plastic.

 

"Scattered" type is used to create irregular aggregate based anti-slip patterns. Scattered type doesn't react with plastic and is reversible with VMS Clean Slate.

HULL TEX AIR

A unique solution for replicating factory applied anti-slip coatings as seen on vehicles such as M2 Bradley, Stryker vehicle family, LAV, AVGP Cougar, AVGP Husky, Leopard, Boxer, Strv 122, Challenger 2 and others. The bundle contains proprietary slow curing, high solids adhesive and liquid micronised texturing material dispersion (liquid aggregate). The application process is similar to real life ant-slip creation procedure conducted in the factories. Product requires a 0.5 airbrush nozzle and a good compressor (2 piston type with 3 l air tank or better) to deliver constant pressure between 50 and 60 PSI. If you are normally using hi-standard tools for painting purposes we recommend that you dedicate a less expensive airbrush for the purpose of applying anti-slip although with correct nozzle and pressure there are no problems, cleaning the tool is very easy as the liquid texturing material contains no binder. Please click the bottle photo for details.

chipnick-dark-brown.png
CHIP & NICK Smart Chipping Paint

Chip & Nick is one of kind intelligent paint created to help you create super realistic chipping effects on your model with minimum skill. Paint works via VMS “reversed chipping” technique. One simply needs to apply the paint over the model and then remove portions of it with so that only chipping effects remain.

 

Chip & Nick doesn't add thickness to your weathering as hair spray and similar fluids do, paint optically melts with the base for an outstanding result. Paint is reversible - there is no danger of bad chipping as you can always remove excessive paint. Chip & Nick allows you to create super fine chips that were so far reserved to fine brush technique in fraction of the time needed and completely hassle free. Paint allows for multicolour chipping effects whereas hair spray techniques and “washable” paints allow for just one colour due to their lack of resistance to water. Please click the bottle photo for details.

DECAL.png
VMS Decal Set & Soften 2 in 1

Decals need two things: an adhesive which will help them stick to the model better (especially true for bare plastic) and softening agent which will mould the decals to uneven surfaces such as panel lines, bolts, weld seams, zimmerit or cast textures. Classic solutions involve two fluids which complicates things and makes the two bottle sets a more expensive affair. VMS Decal Set & Soften is a single, 2 in 1 product that does both jobs better by giving fantastic adhesion with proprietary adhesive formulation while being less aggressive than classic softening fluids minimising the possible damage to paint coat.  Please click the bottle photo for details.
