Computer Matched Paints

Following European directives about solvents and paints our  cellulose paint is now a polymer mixture and will alter spraying over other paint material. We recommend you test spray a small sample first to determine if paints are compatible.

We do not accept any responsibility for paint bubbling or blistering upon application.

Whilst we have taken every precaution to ensure paints are as close as possible to the original, some mixing formulas and paint tinters no longer exist in stocks, therefore some slight colour changes may occur. This is all due to changes in European directives on paint solvents and is therefore unavoidable.

All our aerosols contain no CFC's.

Please note UK paint orders of relevant size will be despatched via courier due to restrictions on carrying by Royal Mail. We are no longer able to ship paint in any form overseas due to Royal Mail International no longer accepting to carry it.

We are also unable to ship any aerosol products via postal or courier service - these are a collection only item.

These paints will, if properly applied, produce a very high quality result, which when used in conjunction with replacement transfers and spares, produce a model that is very close to the original, providing a show case model for the discerning collector

It must be remembered when repainting Die cast models that the paints used were allowed a formula that is prohibited today.  For this reason there is quite often a definite hue change in the original colouring.  Although these paints are prepared to be as near a match as is possible, it is always best to paint a test patch to the actual model to be repainted.


It is also worth noting that many of these models have been subjected to bright light that has faded the pigment in the colour thus producing a shade that cannot be reproduced.  We do not advise touching in paint on near Mint models.

For brush painting use straight from the bottle with a quality modellers brush, cover the area quickly and evenly avoiding repeating brush strokes over painted areas and allow to dry in a warm dust-free position. To spray paint through an air-brush system, add up to 50% thinners, do not return thinned paint back to bottles. Always shake the bottle well before use.

We recommend you always use primer first on bare metal castings.
