I want to build and paint audi like this

And the main paint is gloss black (like tamiya ts14?)? Or it has custom paint name/code for audi color? Maybe its audi phantom black pearl? 

Thanks (sorry for my English)

Take your colors to the fingernail polish aisle at Walmart (maybe bring the wife along?). Fingernail polish mixes and sprays exactly like laquer. If you are doing a complete body pick up at least 3 bottles to make sure you have enough. If you go to Big Lots or the Dollar Stores the polish is cheap... :)

No, you are looking for orange and black paint. Sorry, I didn't check your location before posting. If you can find fingernail polish in Israel it mixes and sprays just like laquer paint. Be a whole lot cheaper then buying automotive paint in pint or quart cans. :)

Oh, ok, thanks for the reply 

But I'm looking for a modeling paint, like mr color, Vallejo and tamiya, im just looking for matching paint (or a close one) for the orange, about the black one, to "scale finishes" have the phantom black pearl for 8$,so it's not a problem, but right now im looking for a match to the orange.

I use Tamiya TS paints decanted from the spray can for my airbrush and mix them to suit my taste. That's is what I would do in this instance if I were building this Audi. As I said, I see lots of red in that particular picture of that particular orange. I'd start with the TS-12 or maybe TS-56 (Brilliant Orange) and add TS-49 (Bright Red) until I got a match.

It's pretty complicated for ne to buy tamiya spray can, there is any "regular" color that i can use for mix them?

That's the thing with nail polish. It comes in every shade under the sun. I bet you can find a match to your orange the first place you look. You said you like to spray laquer. Nail polish IS laquer. It is very cheap compared to other sources and if you check it out I think you'll like it.

this Camaro was base coated with chrome silver nail polish

Then sprayed with an orange similar to Sunset Orange.

The "paint" cost was about 6 bucks if I remember right. :)

I would just get an orange color you like. Different monitors, graphic cards, cameras and photos all vary colors from the original and matching a color from a photo will only get you what you're seeing on your equipment, not mine. Every one of us is seeing a different color ... it's red on mine.The paint mixture formula from the paint manufacturer is the only way to get a "correct" paint.

This is so true. I painted a Porsche with Zero paints Gulf Blue and Orange yet when I photograph it and look at it on my monitor my orange has turned to red.

What about good old cheap Testor's Competition Orange? Looks to me to be a lot like the Audi in your link. Full disclosure, this is NOT my model, it was done by member MikeMc and posted in 2009.

   Is there any chance of tracking down the owner of the Car? If so there's a possiability He/She might offer to tell you who painted it and then you'd be able to find the Real Color.

I can't track him.... Don't know aho take those pictures.

Those colors very hard to get  in ebay its very expensive shipping to Israel... Where can i get them? 

I've already told you "where to get them..." Take that picture anywhere that sells nail polish and have them match it as close as they can... It's really that easy. And it shouldn't cost you 25 dollars either. You could have the colors today if you did this...

Thanks I will try this one, but i prefer a modeling paint, if i will not be satisfied with the other paints. 

Tamiya TS31 Beight Orange should be really close. I assume there are hobby stores in Israel,also online who can get you paint. 

 

There is one hobby store, but she selling the basic items, no tamiya spray can,must of the things i buy on eBay.  i will check this color, thanks

You might look to Tamiya TS-85 which is the red mica for the Ferrari F60 Formula 1 car.It's actually very close to small block Chevy red/orange with a mica in it.The color on that Audi looks like a hot red/orange.

Ok, i will check it

 

Thanks you all

Paint is paint, Elyashiv... You stated in your first post you like to spray laquer. Well, if ANY paint is not a "modeling" paint, laquer would be it... Laquer is NOT condusive to spraying on plastic. You have to use a good primer to keep the laquer from attacking the plastic. Nail polish IS laquer. It mixes and sprays just like it. If you look at the pics I posted in one of my threads you can see it looks just fine. There is no reason to not be satisfied with it unless you just can't spray it well...

I'm also not sure about this aversion to nail polish.  Nail polish is simply a solvent-based lacquer.  Similar to to the automotive touch-up paints you buy in a car parts store or at a car dealer.  It is also similar to several brands of model paints (like Scale Finishes).

If you think about it, paint/lacquer is manufactured in large quantities and then it is poured into small bottles (like hobby paints or nail polishes).  If I were to take some orange nail polish, thin it a bit with lacquer thinner and pour it in a Scale Finishes bottle with their label, you would use it and never know that the paint came from a nail polish bottle. ;)
