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.
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).

Yeah, I stumbled on them not too long ago - what a great site! Thanks-
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
MidTennHobbies has them.
