Hi all,
no sooner had I sorted out the paint chips and colours I needed White Ensign Models went the way of the Dodo and everything on what was left of their website was 'Out of stock' 😭
I know WEM was resurrected in the States, but only for photo etch.
Does anyone know who, if anybody, took over their paint line?
Would be most grateful for a pointer 😊
Happy modelling 😎

Great, many thanks Dave.
Rings a faint bell (HaHa I'm Doug Bell!). I think I heard of that last year but they weren't up and running and it lead nowhere then. I'll have another go.
Theyr'e up north, maybe Scotland aren't they?
I'm looking for the colours Hotspur wore in the Crete evacuation, and some cammo colours for KM and RN WW2.
Cheers 😎

Well ding dong. They are on t'internet but certainly UK based. They do seem to have taken on the mantle of WEM and all other suppliers seem to point in their direction.
I thought Hotspur was a comic? Ha ha just joking

Bingo, the Colour Coat series! I remember now, Sovereign can't post paint outside UK and the German stockist NNT was rebuilding his website then and nothing worked. He didn't answer mail either. Site seems to work now, I'll give it another bash.
Ta ever so 😎
