2019 Humbrol a hundred years old!!

Recommended Posts

I saw when i visited Airfix today that Humbrol turns 100 this year !!

If the Hornby policy sips to Humbrol as well can we expect them too give us the old tins of Humbrol paint again as a vintage range!!!

That should be worth a wait hahaha😄

There's bound to be some one on here who has an original tin :devil:

 

Mind you it would be interesting to see who has the oldest tin of Humbrol

I have a couple of tins that must be nearing 50 years old.

I believe that the original reason for Humbrol tins being the size they are is that one tin held just enough to paint one 1:1 scale bicycle - we've moved on a bit since then ...

I have some old Humbrol Authentic.

 

The old stuff is still good if you can find it, where as the new stuff .............................

I still have some tinlets from the 1970's that are unopened.
