    Aug 13, 2008, 11:49 AM - Help with Arena JP Colors #1

    Hey guys, Trying to get the paints in so when I get my Arena JP in I'll be able to start painting. Anyway, I've gotten all the paints needed for the helmet and JP except for the Rust Oleum Federal Blue. Now, I've searched and know that that particular blue is discontinued and has been for quite a while. Has anyone found another spraypaint that is fairly close to that color?

    Yea but Federal Blue has been discontinued correct? If not, where can you get it? I've searched everywhere for it, and have had no luck...

    I know the feeling. I went to a local hobby shop to look for something close.

    Has anyone used anything else besides the Federal Blue? I guess I could go with asok and go to the hobby stores and search....

    For the dark blue I used generic Walmart dark blue its almost a dead match. For the light blue I think I used RustoLeum sky blue.

    How was the match for the sky blue. Really, I just got the Krylon Ocean Blue, Krylon Regal Blue, and the Rust Oleum Royal Blue. The only thing left is the lighter color on the JP. was the sky blue fairly accurate?

    Been doing some shopping lately in the local area such as Home Depot, Walmart and Orchard Supply. No luck finding these paints as well... Krylon (Regal Blue Gloss) & Rust-Oleum (Federal Blue). Some of the employees of these stores advised me that it's a good chance they might of change the name color which happens all the time when a new Spray Can design comes out. I'm not saying they don't exist anymore which I'm sure some other stores still have it. It just gets more difficult to find since it's not a common color and the years that has gone by when it came out.

    I'll still continue with the search and let you know if I find anything.

    If anyone that has these spray paints can you please provide the
    Item #s / SKUs are generally placed right near the UPC code on sprays.
    It makes it easier to locate these sprays if still available.

    Also The UPC code is found on the label, and consists of 12 numbers.
    It's below the Bar Code.

    Thanks!

    Bump...Someone has to have close colors. I don't own an airbrush anymore so it would have to be spray paint. I really don't want to have to get another one...Had one but didn't ever use it to get the money's worth out of it...

    Dang...I should have read this today. oh well, for those wanting to skip the ebay process, I found this today. I totally scratched the paints I was looking for. They were more grey in person than a blue grey, so, I found this.





    It was fairly spot on. Its Tamiya Color AS-19. It should be "Intermediate Blue" (US Navy). Hope this Helps anyone looking for another source. I'm happy with the purchase, and will go back Wed to get more cans. If anyone wants some, PM me and I'll see what I can do.

    I went to Michaels today and found a new Krylon color that really is very close to the blue gray used on the jet pack. I bought some for mine and will post pics of the finished product. Here is the paint.

    I too have done a local search for the paint. No luck on the Federal Blue, but I did find the Regal Blue at local hardware store which is also affiliated with Ace Hardware. Here is the sku number for the Regal blue.
