    What is the color for the floquil caboose for the mandibles. Is it red? I tried looking up just floquil caboose but came up with different colors. Thanks

    Floquil Caboose is a shade of red with a bowny, earthy tone bud

    Hey Jayvee, just wondering if you're able to inbox me the full list and how much of each paint I need to purchase to paint my kit up.

    Hi mate - the full list is actually in the very first post. How much of each paint can be dependent on compressor pressure, weather, thinner mixing, how much colour testing you are doing etc. As a general rule, i tend to find 3 tins for each of the heavier used Humbrol paints such as the main greens, greys and silvers. Humbrol tins are pretty small, so i prefer to have too much rather than not enough.The floquil colours are much bigger bottles, so 1 bottle is plenty (if you can still find them). For Tamiya and Model masters bottles, they are a reasonable size too so 1 bottle is generally fine, possibly 2 if you wish to do a lot of testing with certain colours.
