What is Colourcoats Model Paint?

Colourcoats is an enamel based model paint created by modellers. We produce accurate representations of colours used by worldwide naval, air and land forces from the early 20th century up to modern day with a heavy focus on WWII.

Colourcoats paints are suspensions of solid pigments in a binder liquid and are either a matt or satin finish, very quick drying and can sprayed with a suitable airbrush or brush painted. We recommend Colourcoats Thinners, a specially formulated naptha based enamel thinner which combines the drying times of cellulose thinners with minimal odour and the ability to return to the tin without spoiling. Household thinners and cellulose will work with Colourcoats, but have the downsides of odour, poor drying times and excess paint must be discarded.  

Enamel paints are flammable liquids and like all flammable liquids are subject to legal restrictions in terms of postage. We don't make those rules, but we do have to stick to them. Currently we can send to mainland Great Britain. We also have a small dealer network covering other areas.
