Howdy from Texas:

Is there another manufacturer in the United States of automotive paints for the model builder besides MCW Automotive Finishes? MCW has a great line of paints, but they don't have the colors I need. I am looking for the Pescarelo Judd blue, the McLaren GTR Yellow for the Harrods car, and the Gulf Blue for the Aston Martin DB9. This blue is a little lighter than the Gulf Blue used by Porsche and McLaren.

Thanks in advance.

www.scalefinishes.com Jameston Kroon, the proprietor, is very helpful, and the paint quality is great.

or alternatively, if you can find the PPG or equivalent paint code, a decent auto supplies store can mix you up the exact colour.

I mean, the metallics aren't actually scaled down paint flakes/particles are they?
