I am looking for a US supplier of Mr. Color Lacquer paints. I don't want the acrylics, but the lacquer paints. Does anyone know of a supplier?
NecronautDrummer said:To 'stir the pot' (get it? ), I can find Alclad here in Canada at a couple local hobby shops, but Mr Hobby stuff is hard to come by, for the most part. Specifically, I'm looking for a Canadian online store that has the Mr Color line, especially their brushable metalizer range. Would ECH be able to get this stuff in, Scott?

PharmPony said:Mr. Hobby is the name of the company that produces the Mr. Color lacquer line and the Gunze Aqueous water based line. Mr. Color paints can be obtained in the US. Gunze Aqueous cannot. Some shops may sell them, but Mr. Hobby is not importing/distributing them in the US.
http://www.sealmodel.com/ericyymodel/ sells all of the Mr. Hobby products and for low prices, but there is a high minimum shipping charge from Hong Kong.

They used to make some Gundam type kits but not sure if they still do or not.PharmPony said:Black Sheep 1 said:BTW, the name of the company is GSI Creos (formerly Gunze Sangyo). Mr. Hobby is their line of scale model paints and tools.
GSI Creos is a really large company that makes all sorts of things. I'm kinda surprised they don't really make any kits considering they manufacture all types of plastics.
