Re: Chateau Martin wine color


I miss Floquil. Their Polly Scale Fantasy line had a nice Magenta; I used it to paint a DT&I 86' hycube. I forget what it was called. Something "Ogre" IIRC.

Bud, I used Vallejo 70.945, called “magenta.” It’s a fine match to the old Laconia kits, produced when the prototypes were running. For more on my use of it, you might be interested in my blog post, link below.
