Hi everyone I did a first top coat in a mixture of Humbrol gloss enamel colours (3 tins, 2 of one colour, one of another), didn't add any thinners or anything else; it was done over a thin coat of Zinser oil based undercoat that had been well sanded & was well dry. The Humbrol took ages to dry - almost a week so far, it's still not dry enough to sand but it is close. It was very nice paint to use & the finish is good, despite the gradual accretion of dust over the week.... My 'workshop' is a cool garage, not really damp & not really cold, maybe 17 degrees C & things don't go mouldy there. Anyone comments? My thoughts are that I just need to do the next coats in a warmer location, but I am surprised that it took so long. thanks in advance, MP
Since last year I have been using and purchasing Valejo paint from my local hobby store. I like the paint as it has a high pigment. Now the store has decided to go with a new brand by the name of Mr. Color This after many request from other shoppers. When searching the web I haven't been able to find any link to the manufacturer themselves. The store is to drop the Valejo line in favor of Mr Color, so my question is: Does anyone have any experience of this paint? Does it hold the quality of Valejo?
I have been trying to find some sort of a chart with several manufacturer of paint for matching. Then I stumbled over this website, where you can enter one manufacturer and get a comparison of another brand. Hopefully this would make it easier when finding paint for our kits. Vallejo color chart Any comparison is possible. Upload a picture and use it for reference is also possible. Enjoy!
