Hi, are you able to sell to continental Europe/EU? Because this is all great but if it is only UK mainland then quite tough.

The website has a list with several sellers in the EU and the US; no shipment from the UK overseas.

However, these websites do not have the tins in stock yet... chances are that post-Telfort many of them will have them in stock.

James:

Any idea when these sets will become available in the U.S.? Likewise regarding the new/reissued range of individual RN colors. Your distributors on this side of the Atlantic seem to not yet be carrying the new/reissued range of RN colors yet...

Please advise.

Thanks!

Mike E.

Yes and Warship Hobbies seems to have expired. Could be a lapsed domain, who knows?

Hi folks,

We haven't heard from either US dealer in quite some time now. I don't think there is much demand in the USA for these any more sadly. Happily we are doing well in our domestic market though.

Well if you were interested, and you knew the formula had been changed, wouldn't you wait till the new paints were available to buy any? Lot's of us still have old paints left.
I don't need any more wrong colors.
I appreciate you revising the paints but since I can't buy the new paint, it's moot.

Am using your paint on both a 1:200 Hornet and Arizona and really like it a lot! The colors are accurate and it sprays very well with my set up. Just received an order from H&B Hobbies about a month ago - the service was great and the delivery was prompt.

Hi again,

I do understand. I heard from a 3rd party that one of the two is planning a restock in spring time. The naval paints have historically been heavily supported by sales of aircraft colours in particular.

We have our new RN paints in Europe already, but not yet in the USA or Australia.

Thanks
