I guess that depends on where here is but you are probably right.

If memory serves Pantone brought out some wierd air brush of their own a while back that you attached to those long slim felt tips, I tried it on a few plastic kits, the results were err interesting. I did however key on a matt white undercoat, it was a while ago. Which brings me onto another thought about playing with the undercoat to attain a better result. Like I said, all just a starting point Pantone although print oriented are very accurate with their colour matching, going on the unexpected methods yield unexpected results tack, Saviour did after all say he was getting nowhere slow.

I was thinking more (outside the tin than the box) like some advise first from these companies. Custom car paint shops in the US seem to be able to recreate almost any colour accurately and do seem a little more skilled than Halfords or the like maybe pick their brains via a quick email - if you don't ask..........

Ember - Just clarifying - I'm a pedantic pom after all


Saviour - Did a little browsing in my sleep last night don't know if you've tried www.houseofkolor.co.uk (think they have a branch in Portsmouth) and www.thecustompaintshop.com they have an online order phone number. Suggest trying to get some samples out of them for checking, if you don't get anywhere give em to me I "melt brains" for fun


Good luck - Rusty

Just took on a new car repair shop as a customer, quizzed them about your problem - they have their own mix booth and do touch up paint from a little over Humbrol sized pots upwards for £3.00 + delivery. Showed him the thread and colour chart and he started going on about variance, warm, hot, cold etc.. Does not seem unhappy about doing some form of testers, so amenable to say the least. No web page so PM me for details. Rusty
