    Happy New Year!

    I’m building a ‘71 Charger model and making it RC. I want to paint it as close to ‘71 B5 as possible, without spending a ton of money on a custom mix. I want to spray it. Anyone have any experience with any of the Tamiya paints or Testors that were really close to B5 blue?

    Go to your local auto parts store and shop the dupli-color shades of blue.
    You might find something real close to B5.
    Been doing that for years. Plus you can clear coat the color to look show quality.
