Testors offers titanium in its metalizer line of paints in either airbrush-ready bottle or a spray can.

Or are you asking about heat stain effects?

Depends. If it's a motorcycle, they're almost always a "chrome" like appearance. Very reflective. (All the ref pics I have show this, even though Tamiya suggests Titanium for painting.) Cars would be similar, I imagine. I don't know for sure, though.

I usually use gold, clear red and clear blue on this exact order.

Testor's Jet Exhaust(in their enamel,bottle only) lightly airbrushed over chrome(Alclad). Here is one I did that way, I used Weather Master set D for the blue and yellow staining.
