You can't beat tartan paint.

Larry-…..If you mean the paint formerly sold as Musket Miniatures Model Paint-I'm sorry, but it was discontinued years ago-long enough in the past that I'm reasonably sure that no one has any old stock left. Too bad really, as I really liked the paint myself and I've just about used up all I have left.

Yes, the paint was discontinued several years ago. I had formulated all the colors and they were very well received (the Smithsonian reported that our U.S. Mexican-American uniform color was 96.4% accurate based on spectrographic analysis). However, since we were making all the paint in our shop it started taking up too much of our time at the expense of the miniature manufacturing. I never intended to become a full-time paint manufacturer and decided to discontinue the paint. We are now a full-time miniature manufacturer (22mm and 15mm ACW, 15mm Mexican-American War and American Revolution) and are much happier! On a sadder note, we have had to discontinue carrying Minifigs and Aim figures due to the problems at GFI. Check out our website: musketminiatures.com.

That's too bad. You had some really neat colors at an affordable price.

I am disapointed but thanks!

Me too. I REALLY like the flesh color.

I echo the disappointments expressed here and especially the loss of "suntan flesh." It was the best on the market.

(I still have a few bottles of various colors from Musket Miniatures and use them sparingly.)

Is there another company in the US that could pick up manufacturing for you? Reaper comes to mind, and their quality is really quite good. Just a thought.
