Close match to Pontiac Lucerne Blue?

14 December 2014 - 06:49 AM

As the title says.  Is there a color available in spray can that approximates Lucerne Blue as used on the 

early 70's Trans Am's?

After an extended model making funk, I have this finished. Built from this kit

Used this as inspiration

Painted Duplicolor Hyundai Pearl White. Hard to see pearl in photos despite the bright sunshine. Interior a combination of Walmart gray primer, Tamiya German Gray, and different dilutions of Future floor wax. Had an issue with headlights. Was finishing painting over chrome on grill surround and git black paint down inside headlight bucket. So, I took silver paint to lens to cover it up.

Revell Buick GNX

Well I got this finished. Left off the exterior decals and the mirrors. With my luck, I would have smeared glue all over body. Painted Duplicolor Nissan Orange Mist Metallic. I know, GNX's are supposed to be black, but I felt like something different. Besides, I have another Grand National in the stash that's molded black. Interior painted Walmart Gray primer with German and neutral Gray accents.

Painted Duplicolor silver base followed by Duplicolor Med Blue Metallic.  Used no clear, just Novus polish.  First time I tried it; rather impressed.

Not the best I've done.  Been sitting around on the bench for 8 months.  Painted Krylon Leather Brown with Krylon Acrylic clear.  Wheels are Fujimi 20" BBS with the centers painted brown.  Deleted bumpers to resemble the Ford FR100 UPS show truck. Still have to install side mirrors but otherwise "finished"
