Importing paint into Canada

Government regulations are making it difficult to import paint into Canada as few of the paint products meet Canadian labeling and packaging Standards.

This impacts all Testors products (Floquil and PolyScale), Scalecoat, SolvaSet, Accupaint, True-Color paint, various paint pens and various glues.

There are three issues: Labeling as to hazardous contents, Labeling as to French, and Packaging. Having obtained a set of the relevant regulations we are working through them to determine what needs to be done.
All paints with hazardous contents need to be labeled with the appropriate symbols. Warnings need to be in English and French. Packaging needs to be child proof.

We are working through the products one at a time to determine what needs to be done. We hope to have paint back in good stock by the new year.


As the developer of Accupaint passed away in 2010 the product line is dead.
This page was current as of the update date. Current price shown. Please call or email to confirm stock status. As Accupaint is a solvent based paint it is not supposed to be mailed.

A new company is bringing out a similar paint" "Tru-Color Paint". We have samples on order and will have one of our local painters check it out before we bring in stock.

We have part of the full Model Flex paint rack system. We are low (or out of stock) of many colours. Please contact us for stock status.


We stock some ScaleCoat I colours. Although these have Childproof safety caps and proper labeling we are having problems getting this paint. Please note that re labeling and re capping (child proof safety cap) to comply with Government Safety Regulations adds a dollar to the price.

CN-Sig Paint

We try and stock the full line of CN-Sig colours. Please note that due to the onerous shipping charges involved with re supplying the paint, we will often wait until we have a large enough order to dilute the shipping charges. Please contact us for stock status.

Tamiya Acrylics

The Tamiya Acrylics are very nice paint to work with. While they are not specifically railroad colours (actually Military Colours) there are many useable colours including translucent colours. Supply is good.


We have basic Testors paint rack. Although these are basic model colours they do have the all important 'DullCote'. Supply is good.


We have the basic Humbrol rack. Most colours are in stock. Supply is good.

Other Paint Brands

We stock a few of the Model Masters colours (BC rail Greens). Other colours can be obtained.

We reserve the right to correct errors and change prices without prior notice.
Please note that all prices are in Canadian Dollars.
