Re: Testors. How Long will it Last?

If you are asking how long Testors paint will last in an unopened bottle I have some old Testors PLA in bottles marked 15 cents and they still work just fine. If you are worried test them out before committing them to a kit. Cheers, Max Bryant

Its unlikely the stuff marked 15 cents has the same make-up as the new stuff. When I updated MSDSs a few years ago I was told by more than one manufacturer the their formula had been changed several times since the MSDS I had on hand to reduce costs, reduce chemicals now thought to be risky, or to reduce envronmental concerns.

Curious! I have heard about those airbrush ready Sachets and even seen a few magazine adds a couple of years ago, but I have yet to see them in a hobby shop or at a show or contest here in the U.S.A. Were they only released in Europe or what?

Testors Acryl was available in sachets in Australia. They have been discontinued. Pity as the sachets were easy to work with.

It was a mainly European thing, although they never really caught on there either. My old model shop was getting rid of them at the end of last year.
