Vallejo Model Color–the Photobucket of paint. Fifteen years later– this paint has been upgraded– a LOT.
After many years of bitterly resenting this paint and the people who made it, I went ahead and tried it again, and it’s really much, much better. In fact, it’s one of the best paints I’ve used. Does this encourage me to be more forgiving? No. Does it mean I should neurotically check every paint every few months just “in case” they’ve been upgraded? No. All this proves is that a manufacturer may improve a product over time. Believe me, this is IS NOT about how I “got it wrong.” This paint DID suck. Now, it don’t. All I can do is tell it like it is. The biggest problem with this paint now is that it does require thinning and that can be problematic, and it smells like the cadaver lab at the U of M. Other than that– excellent paint.
