Finding The Correct Paint

Recommended Posts

I have recently gotten into the hobby of modeling, so I don't have lots of knowledge about everything. But one of my biggest problems is finding the correct paints. Because I look every where and can never find what I am looking for. Whether it's when I find one paint that is the correct color it's not the right finish or I can't find the correct color even with conversion charts from one brand to the next. So is it sometimes you have to just get a color that's "close Enough" or am I just not looking right?

Depends on what type of paint and shades you're looking for. For acrylic paints, there are some very diverse manufacturers who tend to offer pretty much anything I've ever needed. Enamels can be more challenging considering all the restrictions...and one of the major lines- Testors/Model Master just shut some of their offerings down.

 

What are you looking for?

The Internet is your friend, Just enter the name of the color(s) you are looking for (start with those from the kit instruction sheet) in the search field in your browser and hit "return." To look for a specific type of paint (acrylic, enamel) in that color, type the word "acrylic" or "enamel" after the color name before pressing the "return" key.

If, after trying an Internet search, you still can't find what you are looking for, post an inquiry on this forum. We're here to help.
