    Anyone use the Testors Acrylic Model Master paints?
    I've a chance of getting some but they don't seem to be used much in the UK.
    Thanks,

    They are decent paints, they brush like Vallejo and spray ok if you use their "universal acrylic thinner." The biggest downside is the containers--they are not very good. They have a cheap paper insert on the lid, which gets dried paint in it and ends up coming apart. Then the paints dry out. You may have to transfer the paint into better bottles to keep them from drying out (I like the Vallejo style dropper bottles). Either that or seal the lid with plastic wrap, but that gets to be a pain.

    But for me, dealing with the bottles is a deal-breaker. If they'd fix the problem then I would use them exclusively.
    Nap and Gellso like this.
