    Default Floquil paint replacement

    I just hit the jack pot! For those of you who have been looking for a replacement for the excellent Floquil paints, the new Tamiya line of 3 OZ spray lacquers are every bit the quality with even more variety. The only downer is that they are available in spray only at the moment. I called Tamiya to inquire if bottled versions were to be made available. The answer was that there are no plans at this time for bottled versions.

    I simply sprayed the paint into a small Paasche paint bottle with a small amount of lacquer thinner. It goes down like silk and provides a very tough finish that rivals the fine finish of the old Floquil line.

    Yes, the correct conversion from Floquil Hull Red is Tamiya Dull Red. It is right on the money for US Submarines.

    Regards,

    Matt
