Preferred online stores for buying paint etc.
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, June 16, 2003 2:37 PM
Hey folks,

Those of you who live in the US and buy your paints online, can you recommend any good, reliable, and cheap online retailers? If you know of several, can you compare their relative advantages and disadvantages?

I bought my airbrush online and saved a lot of dough, but it seems like paint is more or less comparably priced to what I find in my local hobby store.

Thanks!

Have you tried www.greatmodels.com? They have just about every manufacturer of paint (Floquil, Gunzo Sangyo, Tamiya, etc), and the prices are very comparable.
