Paint to match insignia blue monokote


Hey gang. Picked up a Top Flite giant scale Corsair that was about 95% finished. Canopy needs painted and engine just needs to be installed. Does anyone out there know of a paint that matches the Insignia Blue Monokote closely? I hear the Monokote paints don't always match due to differences in the covering from batch to batch. If you have a manufacturer and color name that matches I would really apprreciate the info. Thanks

Go to a paint supplier with a piece of covering and have them match it. They have a camera that will scan the sample and give the formula for a match. In my experience with both latex and auto paint the match is quite close but not perfect.

Tamiya Color TS-15 "Blue" is pretty close.

In the past I've bought TF "matching" paint and found it didn't match the covering very well.
Do as Pylonracer suggests.
