Martin, since your March 2019 True North Enamel Paints Review, TN has doubled its USN WWII paint colors (including a 1937 #5 Standard Navy Grey, a late 1941 Cavite Blue, and a Mahogany Fight Deck Stain). TH's colors identify closely to WEM/Sovereign Colourcoats offerings and, as you noted, its Bangor ME home address is a plus for US based enamel modelers. Have you new insights to add to your earlier review? Like, what's your recommendation for a single coat paint:thinner ratio for airbrushers of this product?

Hey David,

I don't have any new insights, as I've hardly spent anytime at the workbench - and even less time at the spray booth - this summer.

I think that experimentation is the key to getting the right mix. After testing these paints, I don't think you'll be able to do a single airbrushed coat of paint. But, that was my experience, and airbrushing is probably the area of the hobby I find most challenging. Translation: I suck at it.

Sorry I wasn't more help. :frown_2:

I recently ordered directly from them. It took a bit to get to me, but they were very responsive on emails. I found them to brush pretty well, so I ordered more colors.
