    I'm doing a Pivy devy but before that I am doing a KO re-paint for a bit of warm up and I ended up getting Tamiya light green because the cap looked almost dead on with the green but the paint is a bit darker and more towards green then yellow.

    So before I do anything intense and because I can't mix paints due to limited time (I don't want to mix later and have the colors be off between vehicles) what color/brand is the best match without mixing?

    also it has to be arcrylic or enamel. I have no idea how Lacquers perform and don't want to use this as the learning curve.

    How durable was the paint Megatron31?


    G60, I've had the parts for a while (though I have an idea for mixmaster which may save the barricade I have) that's why I've been hunting for an affordable primus. Though I kinda want another set to do realistic construction colors on.

    its done pretty good to be honest, i have some on a joint for the bucket arm on scavenger and its hardly had any wear and i didnt sand it or anyting just painted and let it set for a few days, for a cheap option its pretty good but i think the name of the color in my thread is wrong, let me know if you want the real name ( i have 3 cans of it downstairs waiting for when i get ready to paint devy)
