Default Tamiya paint

I have a quick question,

I have been sparying my HT2 shell and I have been using Tamiya PS paints. Using PS7 Orange and PS 24 Gun Metal. I started with the Gun Metal then backed it with Tamiya Silver. Now onto the Orange and what would you guys best suggest for me to back it with. I still have a good half can of the Silver or do I get some White? Because the orange looks non solid in colour, sort of not really orange at all. Pale, like it has faided if you see what I mean.

Cheers

Darren

My dad so kindly went out and brought some PS1 white paint for me whilst I was at work today.

I have done two coats already and the orange is showing a much better colour..it looks orange now.
