Does anyone know what to do now that Model Master has discontinued this?

Thank you.

Here is the best cross reference chart I have found for model paints:

http://www.paint4models.com/

It is in pdf format so it is easy to do searches in the chart. Lots of alternatives  long as you are ok with acrylics. I’m personally pretty much switching to Vallejo as my go to for everything except car models.

Thanks. This reference should come in REALLY handy. Also, I wasn’t aware that other manufacturers produce RLM colors. I’m thinking about Vallejo as well, since Hobby Lobby carries a good selection.

Xtracolor and Xtracrylics has a full range of RLM colours as does MRP.

I was in a Hobby Lobby the other day, and their Testors rack had several new enamel colors!  None of the military colors, but new shades of metal colors, like a glossy steel.  Also some flats or glossy sheens of colors they had before, but not in those sheens.

So I don't understand.  I thought Testors was getting out of enamels altogether.  Maybe they are only getting out of the military colors.

Thanks for the post. That’s bad news for an enamel fan. I sure hope you’re wrong.
