Hi James, Can you tell if the acrylic spray paints are real acrylics, or synthetic enamels/lacquers like Tamiya?
MAR 02, 2013 - 02:42 AM
hey Frederick, what would be the best way to tell?

Humbrol have had decal solution for decades.. I have a bottle right here that I bought at least 15 years ago. Maybe reintroduce?

Fred, their site says they are solvent based

So I'm thinking that means the latter, I suppose similar to automotive acrylic sprays?

Nice to see Humbrol moving forward at long last, after years of nothing but dusty tinlets hidden away in a dark long forgotten corner. And nice to see Humbrol getting some air time, in amongst all the aggressive marketing.

At least for me, my LHS, which is literally a plastic modelers heaven, doesn't even sell Humbrol paints anymore. Full line of Tamiya, and Testors Model Master paints is where he said all he action is. He carries MIG and AK washes, filters, and pigments. I never have to mail order supplies, which is real nice.
