...I would consider taking on a new paint line.
Isn't that the problem for most of us, I have mainly Humbrol but also Tamiya,some modelmaster, vallejo (hate that stuff), AK, MIG... all bought to try and see if it was any better than Humbrol... and now I constantly doubt if e.g. painting tamiya acrylic on top of Humbrol enamel will give good results (or something like that ...).
The same for models themselves... I have a stash large enough for the rest of my life, and despite all good efforts, it only grows, which is ridiculous if you think about it: why do I want these models on a pile on the attic if I can buy them anytime from anywhere in the world at the moment I really want to start building them?
Paint is different however, its much more like a tool and I don't want to run to the internet shop and wait a few weeks because I miss a color.
So yes, I do look with a lot of interest to the current popping up of all these paint branches in the (false?) hope that I will be able to standardise on one branch.
Apparently, AK involved 4 experts on constructing a good paint range, maybe us the modellers and clients should join forces and do the ultimate paint comparison test?
Would that be a subject for a campaign????
