Scale Colors™ was envisioned nearly ten years ago but like all well-intended projects, didn’t materialize until a need arose. That need came about as a result of a 1/200 Trumpeter USS Missouri, a 4-foot long plastic model kit of a very large ship. It was almost immediately realized that the typical 1/2oz. bottles of paint simply weren’t going to work, so we started experimenting with alternative paints – automotive, industrial, even commercially-available interior paint. Nothing worked like we’d intended, so we connected with a paint chemist and starting formulating a completely new formula of acrylic paint. The results of 3 months of testing and mixing were Scale Colors, a water-based, airbrush-ready acrylic paint specifically color-matched to historical colors.
Scale Colors’ first release group included the principal colors for US Navy warships from 1942 to present day. As time and demand allow, additional colors will be added covering a wide array of subjects, from warships to aircraft, armor, and sci-fi subjects. As of 2022 Scale Colors boasts more than 150 unique products for the scale modeler.
Scale Colors is a one-man, one-dog operation, who are simply trying to address a need that currently exists for warship modelers.
