probably Tamiya PS52...but backed with what, I'm not quite sure. I want to say a lighter color (white or gray maybe), but I've never used the PS52 so I don't know how light/dark it actually is in person.

Wow that's so damn clean. Not sure what you'd need for airbrush but I recently bought a can of pactra rc297 (kryptonite gold) and it looks very similar in color maybe a bit dark though. Maybe you could try a light coat of pearl white followed by the pactra KG. Only problem with the paint I suggested above is that it needs to be backed with the backing black to show through but maybe there's a combo you could figure out to get a desired effect. When I paint my next body, ill send you pics so you can determine how off the color is from what your trying to achieve. Here's something similar from the member Piper:

Thanks guys! That color is very close! I'm going to try mixing some colors. I have some faskolor I'm thinking the keylime I used on my s14 with some silver mixed in it might pull the color back to something close. We will see I guess I have to get to the hobby store!

ooooh and thanks for the happy anniversary!

I'd try this:
Pearl White PS57 (one light coat all around)
Anodized Green 89911 (two to three coats)
Gunmetal PS23(backing coat)

The anodized green should look really light with the pearl white, that's why I suggest you use the gunmetal as it should bring the brightness down back to the Millenium Jade shown in the picture. I'd do a test first on a piece of polycarbonate.


Good luck

according to SH that thing is meant to be Millenium Jade

could be lighting or angle but it sure don't quite look like the genuine
factory-painted Millenium Jade NUR that buzzes around here now & again

So this is where im at. The camera is picking up some red thats not there. This color is faskolor key lime green mixed with silver. The keylime has a hint of gold microflake. I think it might me close enough.
