    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)
    http://www.testors.com/catalog_brand...br=2&ictNbr=58
    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.
