An authentic display rack would be cool. I have a feeling your collection, if not one of a kind, will be close to it.

Most likely one of a kind.
Selection on hand (all kept usable) rivals most 70's/80's hobby shop inventory for Aero Gloss cans.
I have a small selection of 1oz bottles but a lot of 3.5oz jars.
Most of my collection is 8, 16, and 32oz cans.
Have several in functional spray cans too.

You have any 1oz bottles of white and/or silver you would be willing to sell? Been able to get all colors of 1oz bottles Centuri used to sell but those two.

Earl-
I know I don't have any Silvaire Aluminum, but I think I have Swift White.
Give me a couple days to look. My 1oz bottles are in storage.

Ok, thanks. Well, as timing goes sometimes, I just snagged a bottle of Swift White tonight on eBay. Was part of a larger collection of various vintage modeling supply items, but the Swift White was really the only notable thing in the bunch. The seller agreed to let it go by itself. So, got that one now.

However (and please, take your time looking...I am in no particular hurry), IF you do have a vintage bottle or two of additional Swift White that you are willing to sell (and not at a ‘sacrifice’ just because I am asking), then I would be willing to get an additional bottle.

Earl

Earl,

I have an unopened can of Swift White if you want it. I believe it is a pint can I'll check when I get home today.

I got 4 cans of Balsa Filler coat and 2 cans of Swift White for $20 shipped in an ebay deal a few years ago.

PM me if you want it and I will send it along (I will never use it I have one opened already).

Earl-
No Swift White in my 1oz bottle collection.
I only have 2 Half-Pint cans of that color and one Pint can in the not-for-sale collection.
Sorry.
My 1oz collection is very limited. Have focused on the harder to get cans.
I probably have the worlds largest collection of the color Royal Purple with Pints, Half-Pints, and 4oz jars.
Have never seen that one in 1oz bottles and have no reference of it being available in that size.

I'm still looking for the highly elusive Bendix Red color in ANY size. That one had a short availability window.
Saw it only twice on ebay and both times were part of big lots with ABSURD prices, so passed.

Thanks Scott and GH for your responses. I am looking for it in the small 1oz bottles as part of my collection of the items originally sold by Centuri in their early 70s catalogs. So, the larger size containers don't completely fit that criteria but I certainly appreciate your offer!

That silver must also be kind of hard to get in that size bottle. I have not seen a single small bottle in that size and it rarely comes up in the larger sizes either.

Earl-
You are correct about the silver color.
It was always offered by Pactra, but seems to be rare.
I have a whole box of Cessna Green in NOS 1oz bottles.
Can't remember where I got it.
