Tru-Color Paint was formed by Rick Galazzo and Scott Cohen in 2008 in Phoenix, AZ.
Both principals have extensive experience with formulating paint on the commercial scale and decided to branch out on their own in the model paint business. With the need for a superb solvent based paint, they reformulated the old Accupaint formulation to flow better and give a more glossy appearance after drying.
There is currently over 600 colors in the product lines with many more to be released each month over the next 18 months. There are 7 separate product lines offered by Tru-Color Paint.
For the model railroad enthusiast we have standard air brush ready paints in the TCP-005 to TCP-350 series; Flat, Brushable paints in the TCP-800 to TCP-899 series, Matte, Sprayable paints in the TCP-400 to 499 series.
For the model automobile hobbyist we have the High Gloss “Factory Fresh” paint in the TCP-500 to TCP-599 series and the Metallic – Pearlescent line in the TCP-700 to TCP-771 series.
In the Military Model category we have added 3 series of paints – Naval Ship colors are assigned to the TCP-1000 to TCP-1199 series of paints; Air Craft colors are assigned to series TCP-1200 to TCP-1399 series and lastly all Land Force colors (armor, soft skins, uniforms, apc’s, etc.) are assigned to the TCP-1400 to TCP-1599 series of colors. An extensive product line has already been released in all 3 military categories for U.S. Forces.
It was only natural to add other items to the product line to aid the modeler produce the best possible model they could. Thus, masking paper that gives a very sharp demarcation line when cut with a sharp hobby knife is available in 3 and 10 packs.
Tru-Color Paint is pleased to announce that we will be in attendance at the IPMS (International Plastic Modelers Society) National Convention in Phoenix, AZ on August 1-4, 2018. Drop by our tables !
