New Paint Product: Reproduction Floquil Colors

Recommended Posts

Those of us who used Floquil paint wrung our hands and gnashed our teeth when (1) Testor's acquired Floquil, and (2) Testor's discontinued Floquil. Now there's a company in the UK (Archive-X) reproducing some of the Floquil colors. There are only two drawbacks: (1) it is frightfully expensive (£12.00 for a 30 ml bottle!) and (2) being enamel, it cannot be mailed to the US. However, for those interested, here is the relevant Interweb page listing available colors:

Most available colors seem to be either railroad or ship colors, but elsewhere on the site is an implied intent to eventually reproduce the entire Floquil line.

Sounds cool.....but it wasn't the color of Floquil, it was its qualities that made it such good paint. It didn't leave as many brush strokes as most enamels, thinned easily with Diosol (not their later thinner) and sprayed easily and smoothly. Best of all, their whites and yellows went on thinly and opaquely. Is THAT what they're going to produce, or simply the "colors"?
