    SMS Paints

    I recieved a email from USA Gundam store saying they received a shipment of SMS Paints. They have some interesting colors but they are a bit on the pricey side. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these paints?

    Re: SMS Paints

    Thanks thwalker. I've found a few YT videos, but I bvb haven't spent the time to watch them yet. I've heard they provide decent results. I was curious if anyone had any personal experience with them. Like I've mentioned they are a little on the expensive side ($9.99-$11.99) compared to MR. Colors ($2.99-$6.99) depending on the color and supplier. But when you consider the that SMS Paints come in a 30ml bottle where Mr Color is a 10ml your getting 3x the paint. So the fact the SMS Paint cost 3x more is really that big of a deal since your getting 3x the amount of paint. I might just bite the bullet and order a few bottles of paint to try.

    I'd say it'd just depend on the type of finish you're wanting. For basic colors I find that Tamiya works best for me. Specific colors like MS colors. Mr. Color is super good. And metallics, you can't beat Alclad paints.

    That's very true. It comes down to what works best for you. I prefer Mr Color for my basic paints and I also like alclad for metallic paints, but I've gotten a few bad batches of alclad paints. Which is very frustrating. I might pick up a few bottles of SMS to try out.
