Old paint
Posted by jeffpez on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 6:44 AM

In my stash of paint I recently found a bottle of Model Master enamel with a price sticker on the lid from a store that closed in January '96. It cost $1.39 and I certainly got my money's worth because I just used it and it works fine. Now all I need to do is to figure out how to keep my body as good as it was all those years ago.

The problem with Model Master enamels is that once you do open them, they go bad pretty quick.  They are okay for a reasonable build time, but if you use only half a bottle on a kit and put it back on the shelves, in half a year to a year it will go bad- turn into a piece of sponge like material.
