    Hey Guys,

    What type of blue from testors would you recommend for painting classics thundercracker? Also, would a 1/2 ounce jar be enough ?

    Testors » Paints » Acrylic Paints » Acryl Paints

    I'm thinking either cobalt blue or french blue. Your thoughts?

    french blue is a medium-to-light blue. last seeker I did was Dirge, and I used their spray-on metallic arctic blue, and it'd be perfect for a toy-accurate TC.

    Hey Redline,

    So just clarify, no on the french blue, yes to the metallic arctic blue for TC? Would a 1/2 oz jar be enough? Also, how much thinner do you need to add to balance out the color? Thanks for the help.

    I didn't see this particular blue in a bottle, I got it in their spray.
