    If you have a locally owned paint or hardware store and you know what colors you need you should be able to have them order it. i work in a paint store and we didn't carry a certain color in a spray can and one of our reps carried it so I was able to get it. Might be something to look into? Good luck!

    hobbylinc was the first place i checked. I entered POG green, just green and nothing came up. Is there maybe another name or color i can use?

    As promised,
    here's the link to Testors(They carry Floquil, which is what you need)

    The Stock number for POG is F505113
    It's about halfway down that page.

    I've used hobbylinc before. Good service!
    Most of the time, my local hobby shop has a great selection of Floquil/Polly S/Testors, but when they don't carry a color, I use hobbylinc.

    WOW!! I'm just a tool, I never put two and two together that POG green was Panzer Olive Green. Anyway I've placed my order and will put pics up tomorrow of the mandible. It's not 100% but I want to get some feedback.
