    Isn't all the paints at Scalefinishes airbrush paint? I don't have a airbrush at the moment. I am considering buying one though.

    1965 Pontiac GTO Tiger Gold/Mayfield Yellow paint
    I am currently looking for a close match for a spray paint to paint my GTO model to match the iconic Tiger Gold or Mayfield Yellow paint. The closest I can find is Testors Inca Gold or Pure Gold lacuer paint. Is that going to be too dark of gold or is there another one out there that is a shade lighter in color?

    Here is a real life image of the color I am after. The car on the left is the color I am after. This is a pic of my Dad's GTO when he was 18 years old. I would ask him the color, but I am building a plastic scale model to match this car for his birthday. Maybe its just a plain yellow after all, but not sure. Can anyone figure out if its Mayfield Yellow or Tiger Gold? Those are the two colors they used back in 1965 when they were selling this model.
