I have no idea what the relationship is between White Ensign Paints and Colourcoats, seems to be a bit of a crossover

Colourcoats is available from Creative Models Australia

Thanks Graeme! I checked the CMA website under White Ensign and no paints were listed.

I'll check that out further, appreciate the lead

Confusingly listed as "Sovereign Colour Coats"

WEM went arse up a few years ago and Sovereign took over the paint line.
The etch stuff went to GMM in the states.

Peter, be aware that WEM RAAF Earth Brown is an excellent match for RAF Dark Earth. By far the two best paints to use for RAAF Earth Brown are Humbrol 98 and the excellent but very hard to find Polly Scale RAAF Earth Brown FS30099 acrylic produced decades ago for the now defunct JB Wholesalers.

hi Peter,
you have promped me to ask the Forum if there is an Australian Model Shop/Site that retails the PRECISION/CHERRY or
FLEETMASTER U.K. Bus/ Coach Livery colour paints. The Paint can't be sent by Air and the Seller don't want to "spend t the time " I was told, arrangin' Surface Mail to OZ g.g.m.s.!

cheery "modellin' " mumbas !
