Testor brand paints discontinued? (Short answer: No)

Recommended Posts

But if you read the response Jon received it says "continues to sell the Testors brand in the US and Canada".ย  It doesnt deny halting sales and shipments outside of North America, nor does it say anything about future plans.

I reported this to the Testors Facebook page and received this responsxe:

Testors Hi Vincent, this bulletin did not originate from Rust-Oleum or Testors. Rust-Oleum continues to sell the Testors brand in the US and Canada. We hope that this helps, if you have any additional questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us!

I think that I would disagree with you. Re-read the third paragraph.

No problems. The GREAT news is that TESTORS brand paints will still be available in both our countries.

They may or may not being discontinuing international sales. But since the entire flyer itself is a hoax, and all this "no international" stuff seems to be based on rumors, the mention of "international" in the hoax, and "US & Canada" in the official response. Soย it's hard to tell...

Tapioca futures will hit $465/mt by mid-December. The switchboard operator at Rustoleum tipped me off.

AMT issuing new Star Trek stuff. Thats where money is, and Coke stuff. Cars get bought at HL (stateside) with 40% off coupons. They will likely do new kit, they've done Vettes in past, and they're spending $ on revised stuff.ย 

Fujimi introducing new kit? AMT reissues all Exner Valiants :)?ย  Steve Scott allows R-M to reissue Uncertain T? New car kit comes out, no one complains?? :P

OK. New kit comes out. Usual complainers that have never laid hands on kit. Thread only 3 pages long, huge sales for kit, fill contest tables.ย 

Dial phones and flip phones dead in the forum. Everyone has smartphone.ย ๐Ÿค‘

Uncertain T. Great showrod kitted in 60's, issued x 2 IIRC. Stupid money on feebay. Fun build, quirky showrod. Owner is, um, difficult?

Not posted for hatin' just posted as it'll never happen rumor. :)

The only reason that kit will never be reissued has nothing to do with the original builder, Steve Scott. Yes he's a bit odd to say the least, but the molds simply no longer exist.

Yeah, aware, never heard good story how. It was a new unfounded rumor to start :) . Agree my "reliable again" pretty outlandish too :)ย I'm one of the funniest guys I know.
