Any US/CN sellers of lifecolor paints besides pacific coast models (doesnt' carry full range) or Tankrats (be nice if I could find a lower price)? Need individual bottles, not sets so much. And it needs to include the full UA range up past 400. Looks to me like not widely distributed here.

Great Models out of Utah carries them, good company to deal with.

If it's Great Models Webstore check if they are in stock. I spent a year waiting (lots of "nope, not in yet. Don't know when") for something to come in and never did, ended up cancelling the order. Lifecolor was something I was going to order from them. Just my experience, fyi.

They usually list if an item is in stock. If in doubt do a search on their site but check the box for only in stock items.

Well they don't have the full UA range. Too bad

The only one that stocks the full rangs of paints is

Even they don't have the full range. Tried to order a dozen uniform colors and only got about 4. Of course they stock the set, but invariably I get 6 bottles of stuff when I only need 3 and I'm not into buying sets when I can't get refills. I guess I can buy from England but that's pretty expensive. So I guess Lifcolor isn't going to be an option for me. Too bad. They had some great looking stuff and made it real easy to pick what you need.

Share your frustration. It seems some of the colors in the vehicle sets are only available if you order the set and not sold as singles or at least not widely available. Wonder how many sales they are losing over this policy.

Wow. Is it actually a policy? I just figured that they didn't have everything stocked as individual. I was going to use some of their Italian paint for planes, infantry, and even tanks. Oh well.

I went back a second time and got everything I needed from

So I guess I may be able to order what I need going forward.
