this is a wild shot but I wondered if anyone could prepare and send a brush-out of the Royal Navy WW2 Sovereign colours (507 series, B5, MS series, 1943- B and G series). I simply cannot buy these in New Zealand even from the supposed "local" supplier in Australia (Creative Models) who do not stock the latest sets or new/updated/corrected range. Even then they will only post 3 or 4 tins at a time - at my own risk if they are intercepted. Also, I prefer to work with inks or acrylics now.

If anyone can do this, so I can mix my own colours, I'm happy to pay postage and a small "fee" (PAYPAL). Please let me know via PM.



Almost finished a 1/350 Atlantic Models HMS Gorleston (ex US Coast Guard cutter) - a very fine-looking ship, but not a popular kit apparently, according to Peter Hall; (used the last of my old WEM AP507A and AP507C)

The updated paints are only available in Europe. It doesn't matter to Sovereign so it doesn't matter to me.
Had to move on to paints I can buy. I don't think it matters to anyone anyway.
Good luck!

It very much does matter to me but can't force independent small businesses to buy our products when I dictate they must, gentlemen.

Creative Models Australia may be placing an order soon (within days, possibly). One of the US dealers apparently intends to order in May, so I'm hearing.

We are a very small business doing the best we can with the time and money available to us.

Hi Graham,

We are planning for our next shipment from Sovereign, and all colours are available to order. We can send any amount of paints you want to NZ, and have had no problems with them being received by our customers over there.
