    Jan 3, 2005, 8:19 PM - Where has all the Helmet paint gone #1

    I have gone to all most every hobby store in town and Joplin and not a single one has even one color on the rouge studios list.

    am I going to have to order this stuff off the internet?

    thanks for any help on this

    if you use air brushes, you may be able to Home Depot, and have them mix one up for ya... Just a thought though.

    My store near me (the only in town that even sells floquil) can never get any of the colors I need in stock. Its like teasing me they have a spot for the colors but never get them in. Or if they are getting them in they sell out before I get there.

    Eagleskull there is a thread on these boards for what colors to use in spray paint form. Use the search tool. Just so you know you can also brush these colors on. I have brushed every color I have painted with good results.

    I found a Train hobby store today and I found all most all of the colors. Just missing the most important colors though.
    These colors seemed to be Floquil Train paints.

    * Panzer Olive Green (Cheeks and dome) F505113
    * Euro Dark green 'Unsure' back of helmet. 4729 (Model Master)
    * Panzer dark yellow (Rangefinder ear) if you do not have aluminum ears you will need to mix a silver with this to tone it down. F505111
    * RLM Green (Left ear) 'unsure' F505056


    I found a slot for the Panzer olive green, but it was empty.

    And man was this stuff expensive.
    $3.99 a bottle.

    I should have a lot left over. If I do I could let some one have it for a good deal.

    But if anyone has a hit on these few colors let me know.

    I have one more Hobby store to hit tomorrow.

    I found the other paints at a Hobby store last night. They were worded in German. Like Panzer olive Grun and RLM Grun.

    But I found them all so now the fun begins.
