Yes - many of their (usually darker) gloss colors smell
Donny, I have
noticed that heavy smell - and also for Testors' gloss (dark) brown, gloss neutral gray and gloss black, as well. Always a gloss
color - and usually a pretty dark one, as well. Dark pigments are often heavy particles - like iron- and cobalt oxides, for example - so I'll bet this heavy-smelling petrochemical helps keep them in suspension.
Of course, I'm talking completely
out of my a** now
, and have no idea
why they smell like kerosene - but they do!
