TESTORS MODEL MASTER:
As Testors gained market share in the growing discount store arena, local retail hobby shops, the traditional outlet for Testors products, needed a boost. Testors Model Master™ “professional” hobby paints and accessories were created to fulfill the needs of these specialty retailers. By developing Model Master, Testors had now successfully tiered the market with special products for the two major kinds of outlets. Testors Model Master, now the premier enthusiast’s brand name, is a major profit center for all hobby retailers.
The cornerstone of the Testors line remains its first hobby product—enamel paint. Versatile Testors paint is distributed worldwide and dominates the hobby finishing business. Testors also has developed a broad color range of certified non-toxic water wash-up paints—brand named Testors Acryl®—to satisfy the demand for those coatings. Testors Acryl is the easiest-to-apply water wash-up paint on the market…it’s high-gloss luster is beyond compare.

Testors has recently become a major player in the airbrush industry with the addition of Aztek products to its line. From basic instruments to the most sophisticated brushes on the market, Testors makes an airbrush to meet the needs of all consumers. Testors Aztek airbrushes are easier to use and clean than any other airbrush and the Tesors Aztek line is now a major part of this exciting 100-year old industry.
Testors also makes a selection of hobby paints directed specifically to the model railroader under the Floquil™ and Polly S™ brand names. These coatings are all non-toxic water-based and they perform superbly when either brushed-on or airbrushed.
For household use, Testors manufactures a wide variety of consumer goods directed to the craft industry and home decoration. Water wash-up paints and stains, sprayers, craft paint-by-number kits, and both enamel and water-based Paint Markers comprise the Testors range for artists, crafter's, and the do-it-yourself markets.
The Testors story expands, chapter by chapter, and the future is bright. Good, wholesome, educational leisure-time activities strengthen the fabric of our society and Testors is proud to be part of these efforts.
