Default Candy apple green paint?

Hi all.

Nice Ridezz !!

Were Can I get Candy Apple Green paint for a 1/5 scale lexan body??

I'm pretty new in the RC/painting business, and I haven't got an airbrush, so can I get it in a spraycan?

Thanx for your help.

Check out Tamiya's polycarbonate paint and look at their greens. They should have what you are looking for. Also it's not really candy apple but it is a nice green. Try faskolor key lime pearl.

Thanx guys!!

I've decided to go with the Faspearl key lime color. it looks pretty much like the color I need.

What do I back it up with?? White, black or maybe gold??

And how many bottles/oz. for a 1/5 scale body?

Idk about the 1/5th scale bodies.I do know this I have an airbrush and I bought a 2.oz bottle and have painted almost 3 bodies and still have 1/2 a container left. White will make it brighter. Gold I'm not sure but that could look very sweet. And black will darken your color up. I wouls just test them on some spare lexan and see what you like.

If you find it to be opaque enough for you, you can just back it with a clear, like Fascoat. This way it won't change the color.
