Rapido Proto-Paint

Rapido Proto-Paint

Rapido Trains Inc. is proud to announce our NEW line of acrylic model railroad paints.

Available now through dealers only! Ask your local hobby store to stock Proto-Paint.

Our paint is color/colour-matched to real paint chips for the most accurate shades possible. All our railroad paints dry to a decal-ready gloss finish and our weathering shades dry to a flat finish. All our paint is manufactured for us right here in Canada.

Our first release will start with a variety of 60 different US and Canadian and paints, including such basics as Grimy Black, Slag Brown and Stencil White. We will be adding more paint shades regularly. If you have a paint you would like to see us produce please let us know.
