This paint is not sold in the U.S.A.–but it is widely available in Europe.
Revell now sells the paint in the U.S.A.
Now, for a story…
I dug out my old bottle of Revell Aqua Color dark green. It hadn’t been opened in years. When I unscrewed the cap, I found the dreaded sight of a paint that had almost gone “solid.” A big chunk of solid paint-stuff filled the bottle. So thick I could have pried it out and sliced it into slices. I thought “that’s that–no way will this paint come back.”
Then I added some water and began to stir. I didn’t expect much….but the more I stirred and the more water I added, the more I thought I was witnessing a miracle. The paint came back. Like an old enamel, left to dry out in the tin, the Revell ACRYLIC came back and turned into usable paint with the addition of some water and a lot of stirring.
Perfect finish. Perfect adhesion. AND it can be brought back from the dead by stirring in water.
I’m updating my review (again!). This paint is very good. I can’t say that it’s bad in any way– now that I’ve had a chance to look at an actual Revell paint rack. So, now that it’s available at U.S. hobby stores, I have upgraded my review. You can do a LOT worse than this paint. If you build plastic models, and you don’t use an airbrush, then this is probably a paint that you will rely on pretty heavily in the coming years. The past is gone and it would be irresponsible of me not to recommend this product.
