    Hi, I just bought some model planes so my kids can get started on this great hobby but I find it difficult to get paint here in Mexico. Can someone tell me which are some good ones to buy?, and is there any way that I can differ the colors? Revell has certain colors and Academy others.

    Thanks

    I've been using regular Testor's paints for the most part and I've always been happy with them. You should be able to buy them on line.

    Thanks a lot Wurger, but I do live in the city of Monterrey, not Mexico City which is close to 1000 kms apart. I'll try some of internet sites to see if I can find some stuff and even try those two you send me to check if they can ship it here

    Good Luck

    Sorry but I don't have a map of all hobby shops in all over the world.That's way I posted all I could find for your country. If there is not any of a such kind of shops in your vicinity you can try to order what you need using these above.Anyway good luck....
