The paint shop is on line! We will be adding more colors over the winter months and more updated photos. We are very excited to get this venture off the ground and share our paints with you all!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our paint rack at Patcon 2017!!! The show was excellent and we will definitely be looking to return next year. After a short hiatus this fall we are back at work on our Series 2 paints and a few surprises coming for spring (can you say Metal Effects?)
We will be at ValleyCon 2018 in Chicopee Massachusetts!!
NEW CAPS!!! We have changed our caps due to several factors, not least of which was that many people hate the old tin cap for getting stuck with paint, not sealing very well, and losing its gasket to easily. Our new Phenolic Poly-cone Bottle Caps are superior in every way, and we are hoping to bring back the multiple year shelf life oil enamels used to enjoy.
SERIES 1 IS COMPLETE!- Series 1, FS # matching paints are complete. 76 different hues from Federal Standard 595 B and C. We will be adding 8 more paints that comprise enamel metal paints (Gold, Silver, Brass, Aluminum) and finish the series with Coast Guard colors, and skin tone.
SERIES 2 IS UNDERWAY!- Series 2, WWII paints are in full development mode. We have 20 hues from the US Navy and the Royal Navy, and have started on the US Army. This series will include many of the RLM colors, along with colors from the Imperial Japanese Air and Naval forces, British Army and Air, along with Italian and Russian forces. This series will be rather large, right now we are expecting a full 150 paint hues.
Sourcing a manufacturer for our paint racks has been a losing battle, so we are going to produce our own wooden racks! We will be open to selling entire racks to hobby shops at a discounted price once these racks are complete. The signage and paint labels for the racks have been sourced locally in Bangor Maine.
We have had some success with our gloss, flat, matte and semi gloss coats. Once ready we will be selling these in 2oz bottles already mixed and ready for your air brush. Our topcoats are Lacquer based, then we adjust the heat of the mixture to give a good dry time and a great flat finish but without drying in the air brush.
