Default Looking for a nice "lime green"

Can someone suggest a polycarbonate paint that would produce a nice lime green. All the paints I tried: Tamiya light green and pactra néon green won't give the desired result.

For those who have RC CAR ACTION's february issue, I'm trying to get the green to look like the one used on the Predator X10 in their review.

Thanks

did you look at the faskolor paints? looks like maybe a key lime? you could also just mix and get the color you need.

Does Faskolor cover well ?. Everytime I use it in my airbrush, i seems to come out very liquid and pigment don't seem to cling to the lexan. Is there some kind of aditive I sould use ?

Thanks

no just make sure that you shake it well, warm it up a little and use several light coats instead of one or two heavy ones.

Fastkolor "Fasfluorescent Green" #40107 is a great sub for lime green. You can also alter the desired tone of it bay using a lighter r darker backing coat to get what you want out of it.
