I used MM on my plastic model exclusively for years, and like many was so upset when they discontinued the enamel line, and that forced me to switch. Eventually I landed on Mr Color, and now I’m so sad I’d never discovered it sooner. It sucks for brush painting, at least large areas, but for airbrushing, it’s exquisite! For all my minis, I like Vallejo, it covers wonderfully and there is such a broad range. Plus, if you can’t get the color you need, it mixes super well.

I use MR. COLOR for my dark yellow color on my WWII German stuff and on my Russian BTR80s. I like it. I might have to expand its use. It holds up really well to being handled without a clear coat.
Quantity has a Quality all its own.

I needed to pick up a bottle of ACC and went to the Hobby Lobby nearby. Yeah, I know. But hobby shops have ceased to exist in my area. Anyway, with Model Masters paints gone there are two racks of Vallejo acrylic paints. They have FS-34079 Dark Green! Before I could work up a "Yeah!" I realized they come in eye dropper bottles. And does not seem to be much paint in them. So, how do you brush paint with them? Or are they only for airbrushing?

That's an interesting pontoon boat next to the three frigates! Well, two frigates and a cruiser.

PG, you noticed that one… it’s very… extremely fast. Sometimes so fast with the right wave it will get airborne AND accelerates continuously!! AMAZING engineering.
