From a radio control shop in Queensland I received a number of Testors Model Master enamels.  All the US automotive engine colours I was after except for Hemi Orange - Chrysler, Ford, GM & Pontiac Blues, Ford & GM Oranges and Chrysler Red.
All sent through the post in one parcel without anything exploding or spontaneously combusting.

You could try them.

As I suspected they can't ship overseas. Ho hum. :(

Being enamel paints they will not be allowed to ship them by air.
You can't get away with lying about the contents of overseas parcels anymore as each one is x-rayed before it is allowed on an aircraft.

Like my long awaited Halfords Grey Primer, I wonder how they got there in the first place...…

6 days and counting since I ordered my primer.  :banghead:

By sea probly

You can still get parcels posted from 'straya to the UK by sea BTW.  But they have to be over 2kg.  Which is a lot of paint.

I didn't realise there was a minimum weight for sea mail ? You live and learn  :thumbsup:

I was walking through Epping Forest last week and thinking that the last time I'd gone that way was after an airshow at North Weald.
Why do I recall that particular location in the forest? The C-130 that had just done the show flew right past me at low level, low enough to see the copilot waving at me out of the cockpit.  :lol:
When? Well, the Hercules had a big '25' on the tail for the 25th anniversary of RAF Herks....

Pretty sure it was this one and at this show!  :wub: - https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/6175346

IIRC it would have been that one Nick. The Brize C-130 Squadrons all did the display bird jointly, with all their badges on the nose.

What a splendid scheme that is too.  :thumbsup:

The 47 Squadron scheme IS good. Such that I might have to buy the right 1/72 C-130 to go with it. Opps hang on two.... as the 25th anniversary scheme might look good next to the 50th anniversary one.
