About Us

Sovereign Hobbies was created to continue the production of Colourcoats paint formally WEM Colourists of White Ensign Models. We operate as a web only shop for direct UK sales in addition to International stockists. Colourcoats is a high quality enamel paint with authentic colour matches for navel, aircraft and armour models. 

Owners Gillian and James took over the Colourcoats paint range in late 2014. James has been a keen modeller since his childhood who like many was saddened to hear that White Ensign Models was to cease trading. By chance James enquired about stock with a personal agenda which culminated in us acquiring the rights and stock of the Colourcoats paint. 

Sovereign Hobbies Limited is a small venture, running alongside our main family business. This is the main reason for the web store format, which is intended to maximise our ability to re-invest and thus ensure the continued availability and development of Colourcoats. We are a small business which runs around our family and day jobs but we aim to respond to enquirers and orders as quickly as we can. 

Sovereign Hobbies now stocks photo etched brass from White Ensign Models now of the USA, we have introduced products from Infini Models and Pontos Models from South Korea. We aim to expand into more, high quality popular items for the keen modeller. Please do let us know if there are any products you would like to see listed.
