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.

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 !

Only 8 DAYS left to enter your vote for what 6 military sets we should develop for the IPMS National Convention to be held in Phoenix, AZ from August 1-4. So far there have been 760 surveys received - well done modelers ! With that many responses (that, we are thrilled with ) we have 4 leading sets way out in front.

TCP-10601 U.S. Air Force SEA Camouflage Colors (Aircraft)
TCP-10604 U.S. Army & Navy ANA WWII set (Aircraft)
TCP-10701 U.S. Army Olive Drab set (Armor)
TCP-10703 U.S. Army - NATO Colors (Armor)

It is too close to call the other 2 sets. There are 5 sets within just 6 votes of each other.

It is NOT TOO LATE for your input ! Here is the survey site again:
