    When I'm near my camera I'll grab one, but I can tell you the only visible paint in alt mode is the hinges to the left and right of the fake chest windows. They were red and I painted them blue. They show blue in alt mode. Then again, they're in the middle of a blue area on the truck, so they should be blue anyway!

    I just painted the outside of the truck. I couldn't stand how light the shade of blue was or how un-saturated the red was. So I used a much darker blue and a much deeper red. I gave it the yellow gradient on the nose too. And of course, a shiny coat. :)

    It's Model Master Acryl and I'm 90% sure the name is "insignia yellow".

    Keep in mind that the yellow is actually much more of an intense yellow than you see here. I never let the spray reach full coverage at the end of the nose.

    I didn't pop the whole backpack off. Just the chrome bits: Grill, tanks, smokestacks.
