The Fujimi kit instructions call out for a mix of Mr Color paints for the pink/red colour and a straight grey/steel for the grey. You can buy those paints on eBay and airbrush them. You'll need number 174 Fluorescent Pink and number 3 Red mixed 9:1 for the pink colour and number 18 Steel for the grey.
Zero also do a fluorescent pink and a red, so you could mix those together in the same ratio. They also do a Gun Metal grey intended for the Braun Tyrrell Honda which is a good match for the Steel colour. Hope this helps..

Thrres 3 colors to the lark if I am not mistaken but depends if the decals got a color covered.theres like a pink, then a red and that grey steel color.

I used mclaren red with yellow to get flourescent orange and it worked.just find out what combo of colors produces what color

Are you sure about the 3 colours..?? I'm looking at the instructions and it only calls out for two main colours for the body. There's a red/pink mix and a grey..??

my bad the image I used was showing lights and looked like a red round the wheel archs.

your correct a pink and steel only two colors.

wont be building it like so dont matter to me.bad news sourcing all the colors ends up making the kits more expensive.

I had to mix two zero paints just for wheels on the gulf, even if I bought pots they will cost 's just for 4 wheel rims eeeek!

hope the op is lucky and gets the color they are after and you also cos you got this kit as well?

Bad news sometimes.you need good ref material like quality pics in good light conditions to see the colors in correct shade.ontop that you realy need good graphicsbon yoyr pc or whatever you use at good resolution.i have 3 things thst access net and can show inages, samsung phone, pc and a year old imac.the imac has the best quality pic of all of them.if I was to use the pc the colors are dull and washed out.it will be important as that is whats gonna realy define what your paint looks like.
