Model Paint 42 - A database of over 4000 paints from 16 manufacturers designed just for modelers.

Model Paint 42 is a neat little iOS app for modelers. It features a powerful database of the more popular model paints in use today with nearly 4000 swatches!

Model 42 Selling Points:
- Never forget a color again and use this handy app when you want to find similar colors if the one you want is not to hand or out of stock. You can search across all the paints by color, name, code, manufacturer, finish (e.g. gloss, matt), paint type (e.g. acrylic, enamel) and paints you have in stock.  You can choose which ranges you want shown and in which order too so your favorites are always close to hand


- Contains lists of paints including the reference, name, part number and the color sample. You can see details of each paint plus equivalent colors from all the included ranges. Or you can select to see equivalents from only the ranges you have switched on, the same medium or the same finish. You can see details of each paint plus equivalent colors from all the included ranges. 

- All paints have optimised for use on the iPhone and iPod touch. Includes a list of equivalents for many of the paints.You can create your own lists from any of the colors, annotating the list and each color. Some examples are a list of paints used on a particular model and the parts that they were used on, a list of paints you have, a list of paints you need and so on. You can make notes against the list itself or the individual colors and you can sort the lists and colors any way you want.
- Paints within ranges can be sorted by reference, name and color (warm to cool). Paints you have added to any of your stock lists are indicated in the ranges, the equivalents and the search results so you can see what paints you have when you do a search. Saves a lot of wasted money buying the same colors twice and handy when you go shopping (you can have a shopping list too)!

- Paints can be found by searching for names and reference numbers and by the color itself using a color selector and from narrow to wide search ranges. You can look for similar colors within the same range or go to another range and search that one.

- You can choose which ranges you want shown and in which order too so your favorites are always close to hand
