    Just received this news, which I had already figured that they would do.

    There will be 16 colors moving over to the Model Master Acrylic line from Polly Scale. They will be color matched to the Polly Scale line, but not guaranteed to be exact matches, as the formulations are different. They will be in 1/2 ounce bottles and retail for $3.69. They are all flat colors. Currently scheduled for a September delivery.

    704 – 4873 Reefer White

    704 – 4874 Aged White

    704 – 4875 Aged Concrete

    704 – 4876 Concrete

    704 – 4877 Earth

    704 – 4878 Depot Buff

    704 – 4879 Reefer Yellow

    704 – 4880 Caboose Red

    704 – 4881 Boxcar Red

    704 – 4882 Oxide Red

    704 – 4883 Signal Green

    704 – 4884 Roof Brown

    704 – 4885 Railroad Tie Brown

    704 – 4886 Reefer Gray

    704 – 4887 Grimy Black

    704 – 4888 Engine Black

    Hmm ... sounds a bit like the old "New Coke" vs "Classic Coke" marketing ploy ... but, if it works, what the hay ... and that toxic Floquil formula WAS nasty!

          I hope they also move the colors to the Model Master enamel line as well .... personally don't like water-based paints ....

            I heard from my LHS that the Floquil (at least the more popular colors) will be moving to the Model Master line. It does not appear that they are moving any railroad specific Polly Scale colors only genereic coloers.

              I within the last year have switched to Floquil, I am using oil based vs acrylic because it tends to not jam the airbrush as fast as the acrylic paints do!!! I for one am a fan of oil base, ya the clean up is a little more involved but the quality in my opinion is much better!!!

                I've only used Floquil for weathering colors. Switched from Floquil colors YEARs ago to Scalecoat, then to TruColor when they were released. Personally can't imagine a better paint for airbrushing.

                  Mark,I preferred Polly S paints because I found easier to brush paint with then Floquil.Poly S doesn't leave brush streaks either.

                    Yeah, personally I like the ease of running tap and using a drop of soap for clean up. At least for buildings and such.

                      Unfortunately, I did not see any of my favorite Greens coming over. I use Southern Sylvan Green, Coach Green, Pullman Green, Depot Olive, and Dark Green. I use these a lot.

                        Hi All:

                        This is good news indeed. Hopefully they will continue to add more colors as time goes by. These are the colors I use most.

                          I'm overall very disappointed in the overall color range, so I think that the color wheel will become a much better friend. I'm also continuing my move to the Vallejo line.

                            Well that's a good news anyway. I just hope they expand on it.
