From Phillip at Hobbytown:

 

MODEL MASTER PAINT LINE TO DISCONTINUE:

I have gotten word from the corporate offices at Hobbytown that Rustoleum, who owns testors, is planning to discontinue the entire line of model masters paints, brushes, glues, and all other modeling supplies. As well as the entire line of Aztek airbrushes and Pactra brand paints.

 

I wanted to give my favorite model club the inside scoop so that they can stock up on what ever your guys needed before product availability becomes an issue. I do not have any idea what the current level of supply is at my vendors to give an estimate of when that will be.
