Source for Testors Model Master, or next best thing?

Sat Jun 12, 2021 7:05 pm

Hey, it’s me, The Bruce. Formerly regular customizer and formerly regular Fwoosher.

I’m getting back into the game! But am sad to hear that my favorite paint, Testors Model Master Acryl, has been discontinued!

Have any of you fine folks found good online sources that still has some for sale? Or is there a recent equivalent brand you’d recommend?

I’m most interested in either the actual Model Master paints or something extremely similar. I’d like to explore that route before branching out into types of paints I haven’t used yet.

Please let me know! Thanks much!

Revell aqua and badger model flex are supposed to have good adhesion haven't tried them yet. Tamiya and formula p3 are decent.
Model master is all I use.

It's identical to Vallejo Game/Model Color, just rebranded with a GSW sticker.

I found some Model Master paints online, just wish there was a big set with a ton of colors available.
Also, for my birthday I got a big set of Testors Craft Acrylics:

Has anyone used these?
