Hmm....Will be constructing a tamiya beetle for my gf for her b day...Was thinking of a pink beetle..but i'm not very confidence in getting the right colour...so hw do i mix the paint until i get a nice glossy light pink?

If you have access to Tamiya paints, TS25 looks like a nice shade of pink.

i did apurple vw convertable (old style) for my g/f just cause. I hand painted it X-16 purple. Pink should look good also. What are u planning for the interior? Show us progress pix as im curious as to see how it comes out. Good luck

I would prefer "Boyd´s Dusty Rose Pearl", if you hace access to Testors colors.
Or how about nail-varnish??
