Model Master Acrylic Paint Colors

By | February 20, 2017

I went to my local hobby shop (LHS) today looking for a special fitting for my new airbrush. While I was there I looked at the brands of acrylic paint they carry. Later I went to the local Hobby Lobby and checked out their selection of acrylic paints. My LHS carried a lot of the common paint brands modelers use and Hobby Lobby carried brands aimed at the arts and crafts crowd—no surprise there. Both stores carry Model Master brand.

Since I’m just starting with airbrushing I don’t have a large investment in any brand(s) of paint. Model Master paint is readily available from multiple sources so I’m going to give it a try.

When I look at color charts, I’ll use Model Master’s color chart (PDF file) as an example, I have a hard time visualizing colors from the little swatches on the charts. So here’s my solution:  I made my own color chart with much bigger swatches. The colors are grouped into the same color groups as on Model Master’s Acrylic Paints page.

Remember that due to variations in monitors and printers, the color you see here matching the paint exactly cannot be guaranteed. Always test the paint color on a piece of scrap material before use. This color chart should be used as a guide only.
