a) We didn't buy enough of them

b) They wanted us to start using their competitor's products

c) It's considered great sport in the paint industry to buy a brand, then kill it.

Couple of threads going on MM....all boils down to MM is basically gone. Will be completely discontinued.

Have to start looking for replacements in other lines.  Will  others make their recommendations.

Model Master is doing away with all of their paint colors, not just WWII Luftwaffe. The whole line is being discontinued. Rustoleum, the parent company of Testors, thinks that there is no more money to be made from us modelers. 

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

MM is gone because it is not increasing the bonus checks of the Rustoleum execs.

You might want to look in the Painting forum instead of the Welcome (for new members)

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.
