Anyone have any information on the paint used on the heat for hire sierras. Building one at the moment and bought the Zero Paints set of 3 colors but they dont match. Yellow is far to yellow and blue is too light. Disappointed with it to be honest as all 3 colours are not right

Any ideas?

I'm of no use when it comes to colours but I can dig out pics taken of the car at Eifel a few years back with the original Killarney rally of the Lakes doorplates still on it.

Thanks James. You sent me this one already i think when i was building the Rally of the lakes car for you.
Ive narrowed the yellow down to chrome yellow or camel yellow. I think chrome yellow is closer

Hi Brian,

Russell, himself, said it was 'JCB' yellow. Not sure if that's any help or just confuses further!

Paint arrived today (great service from idmodels.ie yet again) and after a quick test, Camel Yellow is much closer. I had tested over a grey primer but will need white primer instead to bring up the colour.
