After receiving 819 surveys (and we want to thank EVERYONE who took the time to respond to our survey) casting a vote for the first 6 military sets we should release for the IPMS National Convention In August at the Phoenix Convention Center the winning 6 sets are as follows:

TCP-10601 Southeast Asia (SEA) Camouflage Colors (F-4 and B-52).
TCP-10602 Modern Radar Dispersions for F-22 and F-35 Jets plus Titanium.
TCP-10604 ANA World War II Colors, Army & Navy
TCP-10701 Olive Drab Armor Set Plus Detail Colors
TCP-10703 NATO Armor Set Including Verdant Colors
TCP-10901 Flesh Tones Set - All Brushable Paint, Including several Ethnic Colors.

All sets will include 6 1-oz. (30 ml) paints, an instruction sheet and a sample of our fine masking paper. Each set will be priced at $ 32.95 and will be available for sale August 1, 2018. Artwork for the boxes has already been in the works (on these and all other sets we listed in the survey) so that we would be ready to go to production the week of May 21. The first 5 sets are ALL Air Brush ready to spray at 28-35 PSI with a medium tip !

Although set # TCP-10610, the RAF WWII Set #1, actually finished in 4th place (with 250 votes), we do not have all the RAF colors matched as yet. So we will release this set (with a couple of more that received good numbers) for the Fall hobby season.

You may place reservations for any or all of these sets with your favorite hobby shop, online store or with us directly. We will start shipping these sets after August 1.

Looking forward to your comments and your orders. Your votes COUNTED and how many manufacturers have customers choose the products to be made ?!

Hi Martin

I'm just wondering if you know of any Australian distributor of your paints ?

Well, I didn’t respond before, but I’m not a happy camper! I’d like to find a good Hobby Shop close to home (Seattle Area) that carries the TruColor line as well. But, what would really make me happy is if True Color would market some WWI aircraft and vehicle colors, which are far different than WWII or modern colors. With the advent of companies like Wingnut Wings, Roden, ICM, and many resin manufactureres getting deeply into WWI subjects, you’d think at least one paint manufacturer would crank out a few sets— “French Camouflage” “British Greens/Browns”, “Flying Circus” are just a few sets I can think of—. For the most part, we WWI modelers have to mix our own. Come on TruColor!
