I was wondering if anyone has a source of MRP paints, either in NZ, or from a supplier that will ship to NZ?

I'm after RAL 3024 , MRP-193, Luminous red.

I think Nos or someone got some direct from the supplier or some crowd in the Czech republic I think? Otherwise you are pretty much out of luck locally or most places. Due to what it is most places won't ship paints overseas or by air anymore.

I brought some about a year ago from BNA Melbourne. They just airmailed it to me. Not long after I ordered more but they would not sent it. Solvent based paint is rated Dangerous Goods nearly everywhere now so has become a problem to ship / Post. Water based paint is not an issue and can still be posted or couriered. I opened an account with MRP themselves a couple of years ago which is very straight forward. You could open an account with them and try buying it from their online shop and see what happens. Here is there online shop www.mrpaint.sk/
I am interested to try AK Real Colours Lacquer which will be the same problem. Though I am sure in time these AK paints will be available in NZ and will just have to pay a surcharge to have them sent with a Dangerous Goods ticket on them.

Yup...I got some off ebay from a seller called cro-hobby...Didnt have any issues with them..obviously had to wait a while for them to arrive...I have also dealt direct with MR.Paint as Admoto said but that was a while ago and I think I had issues when I went back to do it again... When you get to check out it says "No Shipping Options Available" Shame because they are such good paints!!

BNA wont ship MRP.

I haven't contacted them directly, but when trying to check out on the mrpaint website I got the error about no shipping available to my address.

On the subject of AK Real Color, the AK real color are the same solvent base as tamiya acrylics. If a seller can ship tamiya acrylics they can ship Real Color.

I have found that I have the Gunze Mr Color lacquer equivalent, C171,so I'm not completely stuck if I can't get the MRP RAL colour.

I have just had official word from Mr.Paint and they have removed NZ and some other countries from their shipping options due to shipping regulations.

I was going to grab some at the US Nats in a week or so, but I think they are likely to get removed from my baggage, as I had happen recently with some Tamiya Extra Thin. Not a cost I really want to risk. PITA, because I really want some as well. I have been looking at surface post, but seems even that won't fly (no pun intended).

There's another hobby shop in Australia that sells AK real color but it only in the box set and not the separate bottles.

Thanks Henry
