Problem getting Tamiya paint?
Posted by v6mike on Saturday, January 07, 2012 1:10 PM

Is anyone having trouble getting Tamiya paint?My LHS says they haven't been able to get any of their paints for about 9 months.I'm getting desperate and I am going to have to switch paints in the middle of a project.

We all have.  Early last year the EPA required Tamiya to change their labeling, which dried up LHS supplies.  I heard they just recently got the new formulation and labels passed and some products are starting to hit the shelves again.  I've also heard the quality has suffered.  Don't know for myself yet though...my LHS shelves are still bare!
