Yes, the Replicraft ones are VERY good, as are most of the early issues
of Winsock when you still got a paintchip in each issue.
Ive checked the Replicraft ones againt the pigment paste I still have that was
used when the SPAD XIII " smith lv" was done for NASM a few years back.
Interestingly, all these pigments have noticeable aluminum powder in them !
