New Paint Sets from Testors

The Testors Corporation has been producing hobby and model paints for several decades. In their humble beginnings the introduced to the ¼ ounce square bottles many of us used to get at our local pharmacy when we were kids.  Scale modelers have been painting their plastic models with Testor’s products since the early 60s. Testors has continued to expand product lines through the years, from plastic model kits to accessories and tools, including Aztek airbrushes, targeting not only plastic modelers but also the hobby and craft industry in general. The most recent addition to the Testors line is the CreateFX paints, available in enamels, acrylics, paint markers, stains and washes.
