    I just got a shapeways helmet for my TR Galvatron, which looks great but is not quite the same colour.

    I tried mixing some humbrol enamel paints that i have but I cant get the right colour, can anyone tell me a good make/colour of paint or paints (to mix) to colour match TR Galvatron (or CW Cyclonus)?

    EDIT: I just noticed that the Tamiya X-16 purple looks close, does anyone have this paint and can show the colour?

    Tamiya tends to match hasbro pretty well.
