That Testors Icy Blue will have a TON of metallic in it compared to the Tamiya. If you are going for a heavy metalflake finish, use the Testors, if you are looking for more of a factory color or less metalflake, use the Tamiya. I have used them both and the Testors would be more appropriate for a bass boat or custom show car paint job while the Tamiya looks like something that is a close factory match.

I definitely wouldn't use "Icy Blue" unless you want it to look like a bass boat. The flake in that paint is way too big for a model. I painted a model with it and regret it every time I look at it. Someday I'm going to yank it off the shelf and repaint it.

Here's a better pic of the truck, I think bass boaty will be just about right.

TS-44 Brilliant Blue is NOT a metallic. Here are a couple models with it as the main color:

Are you wanting to replicate that particular monster truck or just the color for something else? Looks like the truck has different shades of blue, and the heavy metalflake is just along the side.

brian thats the older paint job pic.


I know, I used that pic because it gives the best look at the amount and size of flake in the blue. Diehl built a flashy truck, that is for sure.

Try Tamiya Mica Blue. It is a darker metallic blue that looks a lot like that. I painted an 06 Mustang with it a few years back. The color looks identical. (Maybe not so much flake though.)
