It is come to our attention through forums, emails and searching the web that many military paint colors require mixing various colors to get to the end product needed for a particular color scheme. That is NOT the case with Tru-Color Paint. The ENTIRE military paint line from Tru-Color Paint is designed to get the modeler started to paint his or her model without the need to figure out what how do I mix 2 or more paints together to get the end product.

Thus if you need Fed. Std. 30257 Earth Yellow we have it, if it is Fed. Std. 33531 Desert Sand for Iraqi Freedom tanks, we have it. There is no need to fiddle with multiple colors to get what you need. By the middle of 2018 we will have a minimum of 26 AFV colors for U.S. Forces from WWII to present, over 60 colors for U.S. Navy colors from WWII to present and over 40 colors for U.S. Air Force for the same period.

This does not even take into account the ancillary products - matte muds, dusts, rusts for detailing which are in the TCP-400 series of paint products.

ALL of the TCP-1000, 1200 and 1400 series of military paints AND the TCP-400 series are ready to spray from the bottle with little or no thinning. Are you tired of formulating your own blends and missing the match ?

Let us know what you think about being able to purchase accurate ready to spray paint for your models.
