Looking for cans of AeroGloss Cessna Green/Curtiss Blue
Hello all.

I'm currently looking for cans (Quart, Pint, Half-Pint) of Pactra Aero Gloss Dope Cessna Green and Curtiss Blue to complete my collection of Aero Gloss Colors.
I don't need any 1oz or 3.5oz jars, just cans in the colors listed above.
I have all the other Gloss colors available, most in both Pint and Half-Pint sizes.
With those two colors, I can complete a vintage 70's Pactra hobby shop display/sales rack.

Any help/leads would be greatly appreciated.

Cans do not have to be totally full, but must be at least half-full of useable correct color paint.

Also could use a Pint can of AeroGloss Fuel Proofer as well.

I think I have some Curtiss Blue. I'll check and let you know what's here.

Do you ever get down to Memphis? There was a hobby shop there which had a rack full of them. It was several years ago (2012) and I cannot vouch they still have them or whether the place is still open.

Nope, unfortunately I never have a reason to be in Memphis or any part ot Tennessee.
When I go South it is either to the Bahamas, Florida, Playa Del Carmen, or Las Vegas.
Not really practical to go there just for AeroGloss and BBQ.

If you knew the name of the hobby shop, I'd contact them to see if they had any and ask if they would ship.

I'm hoping someone has a can of these colors to finish my collection.
They discontinued those colors in Pint/Half Pint cans before the others and supplied them only in 3.5 and 1oz jars for about the last 5 years of Pactra production before ownership transferred to Testors then Midwest.

Thanks a lot !!!!

GH,'s Corsair Blue that I have multiple cans of. I do have a single can of the Curtiss Blue, but the only way I would part with it is if you were willing to trade for another color I don't have. I also have fuel proofer, but only in spray cans.

What color would you like for the can of Curtiss Blue ?
I have lots of pints of Bonanza Blue if that interests you.
Is it a pint or half-pint can ?

mojo1986 11-17-2014 04:58 PM

Pint (16 oz).

I have white, black, blue, silver, red, yellow, orange and clear. What other colors do you have?
