    I've seen the colors on the Testors website but I just want some input from fellow Radicons.

    I used Dark Blue and Dark Red, and both were pretty close. They're both a little darker than the toy, but close enough for me.

    What colors are you planing to use? Because tamiya makes a dark metalic blue that is really close, and I think their racing blue might be even better. As for the red, I'm not to sure on that just yet. As for the model masters acrylics, I'd have to say maybe their true blue pearl would be choice. I do think that they tamiya would be a slightly better route though, little bit more durable.
