Testors Drops Pactra, Floquil, and Polyscale

In a surprise annoucment, Testors has revealed that they will be dropping Floquil, Polyscale, Pactra and ColorArtz paint lines. The Floquil and Polyscale paints are very popular among model railroaders, and are the premire train-specific paints on the market. Pactra is a huge loss for the radio control car hobbyists, for many of whom Pactra was the number one choice for polycarbonate body paint (and is the only brand of R/C car paint we've carried regularly for over 20 years).

This is a huge loss to the hobbyist world. If you have any particular feelings about this (and I'm sure many of you do), let Testors know about it at their Facebook Page or email their customer service at customerservice@testors.com.

We will continue to carry and sell all of the dropped brands until we cannot order more. What brands we pick up to replace these losses, we do not know yet. If you have a recommendation, please stop by our Facebook page and let us know. Oh, and you can read the press release after the break.
