Anyone know where I can get this colour (or close to it) of orange?

I have looked everywhere online and locally but no luck, I need it to paint my 'glass TA-152 fuselage.

Thanks,

I believe that most large store (Home Depot etc.) paint departments have computers that can mix paint to match just about any color sample you bring in as a house paint. I suspect that automotive paint stores have similar abilities., It just depends of the type of paint you want. Check with them and see what they can do.

Thank lots guys.

I found it ready for the air brush as 'Burnt Autumn Orange' colour at an art specialty shop down town...$36 for 500ml but worth it for this project.

Also received an email from a chap who said the way to achieve the slightly weathered/un-even colour finish on the top surface as on the original full size TA-152 prototype (and the photo of the model I posted) is to under spray grey primer, which is opposite of the technique I use of adding weathering after the finish coat.

I would imagine that FW was very short on orange safety paint by 1945.
