Humbrol has been producing superior quality hobby paints for over half a century.

During that time the company has become perhaps the best-known name in the modelling field and has established a world-wide reputation for excellence. Humbrol initially supplied bicycle oil for Hull's growing army of cyclists. In 1935, however, the company was asked to produce paints for renovating cycles, and came up with Art Enamel. These came in 'tinlets' sufficient to repaint a complete cycle frame and mudguards - and all for just sixpence! That emphasis on value was to become a central feature of Humbrols operations, and remains so to this day.
