high quality lacquer paints. Norm Buckhart

I don't think MicroScale is singling out Scalecoat as they leave off
all the railroad paints, Modelflex for example. I appreciate that
they have looked to the other lines of hobby paints as substitutes
for RR paints, particularly since I am color-blind and usually
cannot distinguish between brown and green and purple and blue for
example, and anytime there is a subtle difference of colors, even
when they are side-by-side, I am usually clueless.

Their list completely ignores ScaleCoat I and ScaleCoat II, which
both have better matches than most of the ones on their list.

Of course ScaleCoat I is a lacquer and ScaleCoat II is an enamel.
No acrylics.

Coincidentally, ScaleCoat II just came out with a series of flat
weathering colors.

Microscale Industries put together a cross reference chart to
identify substitute paint colors from alternate paint manufacturers
to Testors' Floquil line. Here is the link:
