    May 7, 2015, 9:53 AM - Looking for humbrol 11, insignia yellow, and 79 (?) #1

    I think those are the only colors I need, every shop online absolutely SHAFTS me with shipping, except for the eBay store which is out of those three colors.

    I was hoping someone would have done spare tins. Thanks!

    Edit: the number for insignia yellow is 154. All enamel.

    How long have they been out?

    By the way. Did they just recently change their site? It used to be Hornby USA now it is Humbrol USA. I ordered some paint after the changed it and wasn't too thrilled wit the new way their checkout is.

    Not entirely sure how long they've been out, I just cleaned out my eBay resource and have been checking since the beginning of April, maybe?

    And yeah, humbrol USAs site is longer hornby.

    My only issue with that other than forking out 5 dollars for 2 dollar tin, is that he's had 12 negative feedbacks in the past 6 months, most of which are lost packages.

    I'm aware, but one of my concerns was shipping cost which was the main reason I was hoping to find someone with spare tins here.

    I'd definitely appreciate that, Lou. Could I nab two from you?

    The issue I'm having is they're charging 8.95 for shipping, but it should qualify for the 3.95 small item shipping, as I'm only ordering 3 tins. (Yes I am that much of a stickler)

    Well the eBay guy ended up not having 2 of the paints I ordered... issued me a refund for the paints and now it's going to be cheaper for me to just order from megahobby. Funny how life works out... Lol.

    Thanks for the help you guys.

    Quick question though, on the mega hobby site they have #79 marked as "blue green", when you order from them did you get the correct blue grey color?

    yea..some of the names are weird, but i've been using the 79 for a while and it was always correct. I actually dont use it anymore.
