    Anyone know which Acryllic Paint is closest to it? Looking to paint DOTM BB and Nitro.

    I'm pretty sure Tamiya Acryllics doesn't have one that I can use, but Tamiyai s the easiest for me to access. I would like to avoid mixing but I don't think that'd be possible. If anyone knows which combinations of colours can result in a similar colour please let me know, thank you!

    I'm mixing yellow and orange from my Testors acrylic set. I start with yellow and add the orange bit by bit...

    I'm using GM Rally Yellow for my custom but it's a real car. :)

    I'd just like to reinforce AO's suggestion here, as he's a veteran modeler. I trust his opinion enough to specifically point this thread out so he could offer his advice. Also, back in 2007-08, he was chatting this topic up with me on one occasion. Sometimes, I put things like that back in the ol' Quaddy filing system for future reference :) 

    hthrun and Shin-G both have some great advice for this as well. :thumb
