      Great info!

      Still trying to make it actionable info! I ordered a few bottles of Vallejo Ultramarine Blue 72.722 and it looks like it might be a pretty good match. I dabbed a bit onto some scratch plastic and so far so good. Next is a full paint job on a AA 737-700 destined to be a Southwest jet. We'll see.

      Hey Walt, i build a pair of these, but had to go to cpaint shop to custom mix it, however i have some Coblat blue and noticed is just a little bit more darker, perhaps by adding some drops of white will match to your eyes of course.

      For the Red i used Mr color Shine Red

      For the Yellow i Used Mr Color FS13538

      PPG Aerospace has a facility in Grand Prairie, Texas, not far (by Texas standards) from where I live. As soon as i am able to drive again (i'm on pain meds and muscle relaxers for a back problem) I'll motor over that way and see if I can get chips of those colors for matching to hobby paints.

      I think, it fits.
