I was told that it has to do with Scalecoat (maybe all other paints ?)
having to pay an import fee to Texas for "toxic" materials? This is hearsay, but
my hobby shop told me this. Scalecoat didn't pay the fee? He seemed to know all
the details, but I'll go back and ask him again.

<<All the other model railroad
paint brands (Floquil, Polyscale, Testers, etc.) are or have been available in
Texas hobby shops and Walthers and Micro-Mark have shipped these
paints to Texas (via UPS or FedEx). I've had no
trouble getting Scalecoat sent here from out of state stores that carry it
(Walthers excepted) or bringing it home from out-of-state myself (No guards at
the Texas border stopping cars searching for bottles of Scalecoat.). The
Whistle Stop in OKC was where I most recently purchased some bottles of
Scalecoat and he will ship the paint to
Which raises the
question what does Weaver Models see in the Texas regs that in their minds
distinguishes between Scalecoat I and the other paints where other shippers do
not see the issue.

Scalecoat direct. http://www.weavermodels.com/index.html>>
One could try that, but . . . . . .
specifically states they can not ship to
Texas, which was the original poster's (and
his LHS owner's comment).
If any distributor/hobbyshop etc. is
aware of the restriction, I doubt they would ship either - too much risk of
running afoul of Texas
Wonder why Texas
won't allow the import of these paints into
Texas . . . .
