If you use Testor/Model Master Turn Signal Amber, you know it needs a basecoat of some kind to look good, even on chrome. I've used flat white, yellow, and orange, depending mostly on what was handy at the moment. Now I've found something that's even better. Apple Barrel matte acrylic Apricot,  #20764E. It brushed nicely, laid down on gloss enamel, and covered well. Turn Signal Amber then brushed right over it (when dry of course) no problem, and looks great. I think I paid 50c for it at Walmart (crafts section), and the 2-oz bottle should be a lifetime investment. Good stuff!

ETA: I paid 97 cents, not 50.

Actually, I was hoping for pics of the application process. Just trying to imagine the look of the amber over the orange apricot.

You need pics of me brushing on paint? :blink:

It looks like MM TSA over the yellow-orange. It looks great. 

Will post pics when I get the next model done.

This is what I used because I have it. The amber itself is too yellow. I put a little of each in a bottle cap and keep dragging a little orange into the mix until it looks right. The apricot would be a lot cheaper if you don't already have other stuff.
