Frankly I am so pleased to have Tru-Color paint available in even more colors
than my late friend George Bishop provided for us in his line of Accu-Paint that is
the exact same paint from the same supplier that George used after Floquil tried to
give him a hard time. I know that story all to well and never bought Floquil after
that. Tru-Color has expanded the line and offers the same great paint I’ve used since
George first offered it as the new form of Accu-Paint. Even Gordon Cannon used the
same Accu-Paint in Erie-Lackawanna Gray to paint all samples of his products before
photographing them for advertising purposes, suggesting that I do the same with the
NERS “Pullman Parts” line, many of which he cut the molds for and did the molding
before his untimely loss. So why put up with the hassle of trying to figure out what color
you are really getting when some supplier sells the same paint to several other sellers
each of whom put a different label on it? This is nonsense. I’ve never had such trouble
Tru-color and have been very pleased with the way it handles and helps me keep the
freight cars of my choice rolling our of the car shop properly painted. I’ve know very
few modelers who have learned how to use Tru-Color properly who have ever been
satisfied with any other model paint they have tried on resin or styrene models. Try it.
Learn how to use it properly and you’ll swear by it.
No, I have no financial involvement with Tru-Color but would be lost without it.
Cordially, Don Valentine
