Re: Testors Paints, Alternatives
Excellent list. Thanks for posting it. I had no idea that Scalecoat was still in production and that there were other alternatives.

I can't say enough about Vallejo paint!
I hand brushed the roof of my C-19 with this paint and it looks airbrushed!!
Yes I am a big fan of airbrushing---but didn't need to with this paint.

- For the artist's end of the acrylic paints spectrum, the following pages on one
of the principal artist products retailer's web site may be useful:
The first has a FAQ at the bottom, and links to a couple dozen videos. Most of
the videos seem to be single product sales infomercials, but some may be
informative, and there is one on 'Color Mixing Tips & Techniques' that I
certainly need to view.
