    So I'm wanting to repaint my knockout as most others would, However I've never found a good paint to use for yellow or white, I usually end up settling on a silver/gold - but this one I want exact. Most yellows and whites I have tried are very runny and don't coat well at all, can anyone recommend a brand/type of paint to use for the white/yellow? Any info would be appreciated. thanks.

    Cheetimus prime made an amazing KO repaint, I believe his blog has links to the paints he used.

    I've had decent luck with Model Masters Enamels.

    White is a very tricky color. I always shake the bottle like hell to get it mixed and do a bunch of thin coats.

    I used a gray primer on the face and then gloss white Model Masters over that.
    The yellow I used was Chrome Yellow, also Model Masters. You're gonna need a primer and, if you have it, a good foundation.
