    The lighter blue (mandibles and stripe) is Krylon "Short Cuts" ocean blue... The darker blue (cheeks, ears, and RF) are Rust-Oleum royal blue

    I think I have a few extra cans of the Krylon as it is hard to find anymore.

    I could only find the krylon at Ace hardware.

    It's also at Jo-Ann's and Do-It stores.

    It's funny, though. I've had the exact opposite experience -- I've been seriously disappointed with Krylon lately, and have sincerely fallen in love with Rust-Oleum. Also, TLobe, I went with the slightly harder to find Rust-Oleum Cobalt Blue instead of the Royal Blue. Almost the same, but Cobalt seems more... warlike, somehow. *heh*

    If you want to go with airbrush colours, I'd suggest spraying the paints listed above on some pieces of cardstock or scrap plastic and taking them in to your nearest hobby shop and comparing to Testors/Floquil/PollyScale/Tamiya/whatever paints to find good matches.

    I agree with Jonah on the airbrush colors... also, I'd like to see a comparison of the royal blue versus cobalt blue... if I do another one it may be something I try then

    Here are the colors...Maybe this will help:
    The spray paint colors are getting really hard to find though.

    PM me your mailing address. I'll do a spray chip of the Cobalt and send it to you. You can do the same with the Royal you have, and you can see how they look together -- maybe even photograph or scan them together so everyone can see.
