I went up to Huzzah Hobbies to meet my buddy Jasper from WSS Magazine and found Chris unpacking the PSC Army Sprays. I had been looking for these things in the US, but had yet to see them - SCORE! I quickly grabbed some cans I needed desperately - US and German Armor. Let's take a look!
The cans are standard size spray cans, but have this neat ring around the top that shows the actual color. This is different that the colored tops you usually see. I found this pretty useful, as it is easy to keep the cans straight.
So, first up, I sprayed a Barkmann Panther and objective/workshop. I found out that the spray was very thin and light - this was a good thing! I found the coat remarkably thin, but with excellent coverage.
I did some touch-up work on these figures with Middlestone and found the paint to be a very, very good match -- I could not tell the difference at all.
Below, see the PSC Spray on the left, Vallejo Brown Violet on the right. Looks the same to me.

Conclusion: 7/8 Finished Tanks
I like the PSC sprays and recommend them. They go on REALLY thin, but have very good coverage. I found the small cap a little annoying, but nothing to get upset about. Let's face it - if you do not plan to get an airbrush, there are not a ton of choices out there and this fills a real and present void in the market.
At USD$14.99, it is a bit much. I am guessing that shipping cost of spray paint is insanely expensive and that is impacting the price.
As with anything, I would suggest painting a platoon at a time -- there is always some variation in conditions, techniques, etc. This will ensure that every platoon has a uniform look.
