    I think I used Humbrol Insignia Yellow enamel through an airbrush, then faded it to orange at the back with some Tamiya Clear Orange.

    If you can still find any Floquil or Polly Scale paints anywhere, UP Armor Yellow is what
    I like to use. The Floquil/Polly Scale brand is being discontinued, so it's becoming harder
    to find them. I suppose I'll have to search for a replacement color soon. . . sigh.
