    I've recently bought one of these and it's fine apart from a couple of minor scratches I want to touch up. Does anyone have any advice on which particular pink paint was used, or if not which standard paints are similar ? I've e-mailed impossible toys directly but haven't had a response yet. Thanks for any help you can provide ! Mark

    Honestly I think mixing your own up will give you the best results. You'll be able to control the color a lot more than looking for a premixed pink.

    Pretty much what OP said...

    You'll have the most success with a custom mix. Mix and test, mix and test, mix and test until you come up with something that's ostensibly the same shade of factory pink.

    Thanks for the responses guys, is it really as straightforward as knocking up a batch of white and adding gradual amounts of red until you get the right colour ?

    More or less.

    Perhaps even taking an existing pink and adding white or red to it to make it either lighter or darker.
