    Where's the best place to find it (varying colors, quantity, etc.) in stores? Hobby Lobby? Michaels? Help a fellow out. :)

    Hobby Lobby has some. I think they've got a full selection of the enamels, but they have fairly small racks for the acrylic line. Hobby shops tend to have a larger variety of the acrylics.

    I get all my paint/brushes from a place called Hobbytown USA, they have a few in florida

    They have model master, and I think you can go through the site, pick your store, and get somewhat of an idea what they have.

    I'm not sure if it's "chain-wide" or whatever, but the store here has a frequent buyers card. You get discounts or something if you spend so much... I can't remember the details though, might be like, $5 off $25 for every $100 spent? I dunno, better than nothing :D

    the thing that kills me with ordering online is that sometimes you only want a bottle or two, then get stuck with a $8 shipping fee. I mean come on. the things have their damn weight on the bottle! two 1/3 oz bottles should not cost eight bucks to ship.

    Yeah true. They charged me 9 bucks for a hundred dollar order which wasn't bad imho. But I still tend to try and go to my local shop even though they charge a little more for Tamiya. Oh well to each his own, right?:D
