  1. Reblogged this on The Ship Modeler and commented:
    With the loss of the Floquil Marine Colors (many years ago) and Railroad Colors, the availability of oil based paints has shrunk. But, here is a line of oil based paints specifically for the marine modeler. These cleanup easily with Acetone and I’ve read that they airbrush very nicely. I’ll be trying them out myself.
