The paint is Tamiya Italian Red on top of Tamiya white primer.
Many say Tamiya is over priced but I would disagree. With the proper prep and primer I have yet to be let down.
I also laid down two coats of clear tonight. Tomorrow I'll polish and clear again. Then decal.

Paint job looks good Rob,not bad for straight out the can.I agree with you about tamiya paints.They are my prefered choice too
Kyle and Charles your builds are progressing well.
I got a bit side tracked with non model related stuff.
But body has been prep sanded and currently soaking in dishwashing detergent,will get some primer on it after tea then let it dry overnight.
Whilst the body drys il get evrything else prep'd and start some sub assemblies.Going be a late night need to catch up on lost time,and get everything ready for paint tomorrow.
Keep at it fella's

Looks awesome man.
Thanks guys for the comments on my red bomb. I am happy with the progress. Almost everything is now painted so a good drying over night will leave me ready to really make some progress tomorrow. There still will be some minor painting to do but nothing huge.
