    I was wondering if anyone had any idea or know how to achieve the shimmering iridescent color effect such as shown in the link or pic below.

    It's called a Aurora sticker. I've never seen them state and the example above is from Hobby Link Japan. I would order some but with the shipping it wouldn't be a sound purchase.

    Are there any model paints that can get this type of effect? I would hit the local hobby stores if we had any and the closest ones are about 45 minute drive away. So anyone had any ideas to give me to look out for when I head up to the city would be greatly appreciated.

    pearl glaze will do that to any existing color you already have on a figure, or you can use krylon x-metals paints, though you'll have a smaller selection of colors that way.
