    I placed an order online last night for some common Fett colors.
    My local hobby shop carries a limited supply of Floquil. I'm gonna hit them this weekend
    and see what I can find.

    Wow I forgot how super expensive it is to buy all those paints all at once! $127 in paint and shipping from Testors. The worst is I think I have almost all of them at home already I just don't want to run out later and one or two of them might be old/bad.

    Lovely, just ordered some fast dwindling stock of CNW and Southern Green. Not Having supplies to produce 'Jayvees chameleon Green' ever again, would've made for a very unhappy 'lil Jonny...

    Okay question for the ESB crowd. What is the Floquil/Polly Scale color for the jetpack? Is it the same as the gauntlet color or the armor color?

    Got the stuff I ordered a few days ago. That should hold me for a while.
    I'll probably make another biggish order before too long.

    Re: The end of Floquil/Polly Scale?!?!?!

    Hi Guys! I'm making my first scratch-build bucket, thanks to WoFs templates and AntMans tutorial. Now that Floquil and Pollyscale are defunct, what do you recommend using (colours/brands) and where can I get them in the UK? Help would be appreciated! Cheers.
