Testors Kills Pactra RC Paint Line

Pactra Paint RCThe end of an era? If you’re like us you’ve been using the Pactra line of RC paints since the first day you stepped into this hobby. Unfortunately Pactra’s parent company Testors has announced that it will be discontinuing the paint line along with Floquil and Polyscale, which are used in the train hobby, as well as Colorartz craft paint. Testors cited the reason for this change being the shift in the RC hobby from kits with clear bodies to ready to run vehicles which come with pre-painted bodies. The company will be closing a 115,000 square foot facility located in Rockford, IL and gone with it will be an unknown number of jobs. Its remaining workforce will be relocated to a 27,000 square foot facility just up the road. You have to wonder who will fill the void left in the RC hobby by the demise of Pactra.

‘Twas The R/C Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when at the hobby shop
The cars were running, in circles nonstop
The engines just sung, tuned with care
In hopes for a win at the nitro race of the year
