Tru-Color Paint was formed in 2008 by Rick Galazzo and Scott Cohen, both of whom come from extensive backgrounds in formulating paint on the commercial scale. They set out on their own to develop this paint line of solvent-based paint by reformulating the old Accupaint formulation to flow better and give a more glossy appearance after drying. They currently offer over 600 colors offered with more to follow. Sets and single bottles are available and include lines for railroad, automotive, and military aircraft and armament lines.

The specific set I tested was specifically for NATO and modern armor and includes a sample of their masking frisket papers as well as the following colors in 1 oz. bottles:

In today’s review we will be doing a Soviet Union Lend lease M10, This Tank was originally released back in 2014 for the 70th anniversary of the Normandy invasion with that being said this new release does have a few things differently such as the decal sheet and the Soviet figures.

Let’s start will the Hull, This kit does offer the interior which is very nicely detailed. Some of the fit needed some work such as the 4 Sponson containers on the sides of the tank. The diamond blade deck was a very tight fit and required some additional sanding to sit in with ought bending the deck. My only real complaint is the lack of an engine for the build. The outside of the Hull is also very nicely detailed with all the little details that are added plus the molded-in features such as the weld lines and positionable crew hatch’s.
