Tru-Color Paint is pleased to announce that the survey to choose what initial paint sets (up to 6) should be manufactured for the IPMS Convention to be held on August 1-4, 2018 in Phoenix, AZ. has gone LIVE on our website as of today, 3/22/18.

The website address for survey is :

trucolorpaint.com/trucolor-paint-release-survey/

Please take the time to fill out the survey. The more information we have on what set(s) the modelers want to have, then those sets will be the first produced for the convention and for sales to your local hobby shops or online stores. Thank you in advance for taking this survey and we look forward to your input.

Very nice response modelers ! After only 2 days of the survey being live on our website we have already received over 50 completed surveys for the most popular military sets YOU want to see manufactured for the IPMS National Convention to be held August 1-4 in Phoenix, AZ.

Keep up the good work ! The survey will remain on the website until May 18th. That is the LAST DAY we will take surveys into account for development of the sets. If you missed the survey website address, here it is again :

The website address for survey is :

Your input matters - we will produce only those first 6 sets which garner the most votes in the survey. How about that, a manufacturer who listens to their customers. After the convention we will add more sets to the product line, but following what is most wanted.

Looking forward to your votes and comments on the survey.

On several survey sheets we were asked what would be the finish of the paints in the sets. For all cases the finish would be what was called for in the appearance of the color chips we are matching our paint to, the Federal Standard call outs for more modern colors and the advice of experts in their fields that we are working with on developing our military paint product line.

However, we had a few respondents who stated we should release these sets with only glossy paint, regardless of what the specification, color chips or experts say. This way decals would be much easier to apply and since most modelers seal the decals with clear flat this would eliminate a step on having to Gloss coat the paint for decal application.

We would like to have YOUR OPINION on this subject. You can either reply to this thread OR add it to the comments section on the bottom of the set survey.

Do NOT forget to vote for your favorite sets on the survey - the more info we get, the better we like it !

Modelers - Need your input ! Survey still has about 3 weeks to go and we need MORE feedback. So far about 500 responses have been tallied, but that is a drop in the bucket as to the number of military modelers out there. So far the big winners (if we were to decide right now) would be aircraft and armor sets.

In case you need it again, here is the survey section on our website:

Use this to post your vote for the first 6 sets YOU would like us to develop for the IPMS National Convention.

Martin,
Just out of curiosity, you mention these sets are being developed for the Nationals-- but will they be available for purchase as sets post Nationals as well? I'm not planning on attending the Nationals, but if a "Yellow Wings"set is forthcoming, I'd probably be interested.
