Paints

Central Hobbies stocks many lines of paints. See below for current status of in production and discontinued paint lines.


Importing paint into Canada

Government regulations are making it difficult to import paint into Canada as few of the non-acrylic paint products meet Canadian labelling and packaging Standards.

This impacts Humbrol, Scalecoat, SolvaSet, various paint pens and various glues.

There are three issues: Labeling as to hazardous contents, Labeling as to French, and Packaging. Having obtained a set of the relevant regulations we are working through them to determine what needs to be done.
All paints with hazardous contents need to be labeled with the appropriate symbols. Warnings need to be in English and French. Packaging needs to be child proof.


TrueColor

The TrueColor paint line is a direct replacement for Accupaint. We stock some colours. A list of what we stock, including the Accupaint colors will be posted when time permits.
