Hi Guys, what is the correct mix to get this color. Cockpit green with some yellow?

That should do it; but if you use acrylics Tamiya XF4 is a reasonable match imo.

Thanks, I am an enamel/laquer kind of guy, but bought Tamiya acrylic just for this. But, I'm getting ahead of myself. This is for my next project.

Testors makes a very nice enamel YZC primer color, but its not in their normal Model Master paint series:

It can be ordered on line, as I have not had much luck finding it locally where I live here in the US Mid-west.   

I used this color on my Trumpy SU-30MKK, and had great luck with it.........no mixing involved. I did use variations of the color, by lightening it in certain places with white or gray to get a more faded color on top:

The bottom has the non-mixed/lightened color:

Was very pleased with how the color laid down.

The standard in enamels for ZCY is the Testors paint in the small square glass bottles. In acrylics, Ammo of Mig makes it.

I use the testors one, too. I wonder why they never put it into their MM line? BTW, Hobby Lobby usually carries it, as well as Hobbytown USA stores.

Actually, Model Master does make a YZC, number 4851 in their Acryl line.  I'm holding two bottles right now (amazing I can still type).

 

Check the colors tho (as always) - various manufacturers interpretation of YZC varies widely.  Tamiya's XF-4 is browner than the MM Acryl or Enamels.

 

And Brian - just one word:  DAMN!!!

That is gorgeous work.  DAMN!

Yes, but he said he preferred enamels, so I didn't count the MM Acryl offering. If he was going for acrylic, he'd have lots of great options, I expect.

Can always use acrylics for this, it's basically for the wheel wells, engine frames etc.

How about this for a Green Zinc Chromate? Looks pretty darn close to me.
