    i was always under the impression it was hard to get monty out in aus, because its so far away.

    anyway, im only saying this because no one else is bothering.

    you can get montana over here, it's just expensive. most people mix paint, or use local brands because it's alot cheaper.

    This Is It montana, belton, markers, ink...everything you'll need

    im sure it can't be as expensive as over here (perth), the montanas here are $12.50 each, yeah we mix paint here aswell but montys dont really stock montanas that much anymore, a batch every few months and the panel heads buy them all by the next week. could someone give details of VA/Giant paint store aswell

    cheers

    The white? I haven't used it yet but i have heard it isn't very good.
    The blue is good, The black is decent, and the yellow is alright, but it seems to get very weak as you use it.

    yeah, i found some of them start ok and get thinner and softer as you get down the can. i only use the white for highlights and it's been nice and thick for me so far. i'm about half-way through the can at the moment.
