Today, someone pointed out in a ship modeling newsletter that there is a new manufacturer of model paints called True North Precision Enamels. The Maine based company is making a complete line of oil based enamel paints, and It appears that BlueJacket Shipcrafters is in the works to start carrying the new brand of paints (As of this date, these don’t seem to appear on their online shop).
The color selection is a bit limited yet, but there appear to be plans to fill out a line of 5 series of colors that includes:
- Federal Standard 595B and C Matching Colors
- World War 2 Military Colors
- Modern Military Colors
- Non-Military, Automotive, Figure and Mixing Colors
- Metal Effects
I haven’t tried the new paints out myself yet, though I just ordered a sample of colors. But, the paint series is being created by modelers (both founders are modelers) for modelers. So, this should be some good news for modelers of all kinds. Ω
