Aero Gloss made several reds (Fokker, Stearman, Candy Apple), blues (Metallic, Corsair, Curtiss, Bonanza), and greens (Stinson, Cessna, Olive).

The only pints I'd be willing to trade is Bonanza Blue as I have a ton of that.

Is your Curtiss Blue Pint Full ?
I would be willing to trade a full Pint of Bonanza Blue and a half-pint of Stearman Red, Jet Black, or Corsair Blue for your Pint of Curtiss Blue if full and usable.

Does anybody have an empty Cessna Green or Curtiss Blue can?

This is your chance to send an appreciative receiver a pint of JENKEM...

Geez thanx, Bill.
I have never played any pranks on any of you fine folks.
I just describe 'em here hoping it gets a laugh from the 'regulars' with warped senses of humor like mine.

Actually an empty can would be acceptable in these colors also. I have an over abundance of Cessna Green and Curtiss Blue in 3.5 oz jars that I could empty to fill a can.

You have to admit...that would be a heck of a good prank...

Any luck with Mid-South?

Have not had a chance to call Mid-South...have been extremely busy with doctor appts due to ill health.

That would be a good prank though.

I often pick up cans of vintage AeroGloss on Ebay.
One half-pint of Metallic Blue that I got literally smelled almost as bad as a can of Jenkem.
I think somebody LITERALLY tried to thin it with a mixture of Urea and Methylene Chloride.
It was totally rank and got insta-thrown into the dumpster.

Aero Gloss colors and dope if different than other dopes sold by Sig and Brodak, wish they were still making colors. I have a pretty good collection and use them for my freeflight models. I guess Pactra made there own dope vs buying and repackaging like most companies.

I have several half-pint cans of colors I'd be willing to trade for a half-pint or pint can of either Cessna Green or Curtiss Blue. Also have several Pint cans of Bonanza Blue I'd be willing to trade.
Interested in purchasing said colors as well for a premium price.

Still looking for Quart, Pint, and Half-Pint cans of Aero Gloss Dope in Cessna Green, Curtiss Blue and also Fuel Proofer.
Looking for ANY Quart-sized cans in ANY Color except Stearman Red.
Looking for ANY Gallon-sized Aero Gloss cans as well including Thinner; even looking for gallon EMPTIES as long as the can is in decent shap with a readable label.
Interested in most Pint cans as well.
Very limited interest in half-pints unless rare colors.
