    Man I knew that the local R/C shop carried these paints so I decided to head on down and check out the selection. I go in and see that they a have a very nice assortment of the 1oz. jars(minus a few as seen in the picture). I grabbed a few metallics to play with and the guy cut me a deal at 2.50 a bottle instead of there normal price of 5. As I am walking out I decide to come back in and I ask him "how much for all of them?" The guy was like whaaaaa? and I said "yeah all of them, they are discontinued and you guys dont seem to be selling them very fast, let me take em off your hands." He thinks about it then calls his boss, I talk to the owner for a bit and ask him the same thing after a bit of haggling he says you know what give me a 100 and its all yours. I said even the metal display? He says Sure! LOL so yeah after I fill in the missing spots I will never need paint again. I just counted the bottles and its at 113 jars. so not a bad deal right? Go check your hobby stores now and haggle a bit, they know these are discontinued and want them outta the store. The end.

    Yep! I am moving stuff around now so I can have it all ready to go when I need it. The display is nice cause it has the color chips right in front of each jar and can hold 3 deep of each.

    The hobby shop next to my job went out of business. They just closed and vanished. Maybe I could have been this lucky.

    Well I tried your haggaling method today at my local Hobby store. They had shit load of those paints. But for some reason they didn't want to budge on their price nor did they want to let me buy the hole rack of paint. :(

    I sense a paint shortage in the near future.

    I also sense future custom awesomeness.

    Go ahead, PROVE me wrong; I dare both of you guys (and you know who you are!).

    Awe, boo on them, you should give them your number and tell them when they are ready to get rid of the lot let you know. Do they still carry a nice stock and sell them often? If not it shouldnt be to much time till they try to liquidate.

    Wow! That's one heck of a deal. I miss our LHS. We had 2, and they're both gone. Makes me sad.

    Ya, their stocks still in pretty good shape. They have the little bottles of paint. As well as some spray cans, also they have a few starter sets on hangers next to their front counter. Oh and also nice airbrush kit for nifty price. Not sure how often they sell them, but me wants it all! You can never have enough paint in my book.
