Welcome to Archive-X, the only paint company dedicated to Star Wars models.


Our brand was established in 2017 to provide studio scale modelers and the film industry with the best hi grade model paint in the UK based on the original Floquil vintage paint colours used by ILM to create the models and costumes for the original Star Wars films. With our website, we want to create an environment which will help scale modelers and Star Wars modelers improve their skills and techniques. Archive-X paints help achieve a more authentic look and can be used by modelers of all abilities.

As well as Archive-X paints that replicate the vintage hues of Floquil paints, soon we will be introducing bespoke and original art pieces as well as studio scale concept models designed for Star Wars films.

We have spent years intensively researching the original vintage hues used by ILM on the original Star Wars models to enable us to develop the most precise enamel paints at Archive-X.

We have been fortunate enough to work alongside some of the most talented artists from across the globe, and some of the ILM team have been kind enough to impart their knowledge. Our paints have been used by some of the original ILM team and the model team at Pinewood Studios for the new Star Wars films.

As well as providing the very best model paints, we offer advice and tips on painting techniques that can be used on Star Wars studio scale models and prop replicas.

Please feel free to contact us if you’d like any information or advice, and we hope you enjoy browsing our online shop.

Look out for our Star Wars models and art pieces which are coming soon to the website.
