White Ensign Paints? Available in the U.S.?
Posted by ModelNerd on Wednesday, August 29, 2007 1:44 AM

Does anyone know if someone here in the U.S. carries White Ensign brand paints? I hate the thought of the price of shipping just one or two tins from the U.K.

If Great Models carries them, that's awesome. I know Pixilator used those for some of his german planes, and he liked the way the paint behaved for the most part. I was thinking of purchasing the whole Soviet Union paint set, but I don't have a Soviet bird in my stash yet!

Just out of curiosity, what are you going to paint with them?

My house. In a nice splinter pattern.Smile,Wink, & Grin [swg]

Actually, I'm going to build my VERY FIRST Japanese warplane. I was given a Tamiya Mitsubushi Type O "Pete" Nave observation seaplane kit (somewhat of a rare kit, apparently, so I hope I don't screw it up!). It's a biplane AND a floatplane, and it looks pretty interesting. I'm in uncharted waters, as I know just about nothing about Japanese aircraft, in terms of colors, so it should be an enlightening experience. I'm already learning strange new terms, such as "Aotake" (it's a metallic blue-green primer, akin to the U.S. zinc chromate).

Ah yes, Aotake. I've heard you can make a pretty mean aotake with Future and Tamiya clear blue. Do you know about j-aircraft.com? I've got that bookmarked for when I build my first Japanese plane!!

Recently found a newer business that carries a broad inventory of White Ensign Paints. They also seem to specialize in resin ship models. Try them at:    www.warshiphobbies.com
