Amber paint

I’m currently building an M1142 TFFT, a HEMTT variant, and there’s a ton of amber running lights on it. It occurred to me that among my hundreds of bottles of paint, I don’t have amber paint. I didn’t think anyone made amber paint - a search just turned up Testors makes an acrylic “Turn Signal Amber”. Guess I’m getting a bottle of that. Does anybody make a clear amber?

The Testors one is a “clear” paint. It looks just like amber-tinted plastic/glass once applied. I have used it for years.

Thanks Gino. Just what I wanted to hear!

Humbrol also makes a clear orange paint in their line. It’s in their 1300 series numbers of paints.

If you like working with TAMIYA, they make X26 which is clear orange
and represents the amber lights quite well.


Tamiya also make a clear orange that should also work.

@Stikpusher @Grauwolf @Armorsmith Thanks for the suggestions guys. :beer:

I’ve still got a bottle of Testor’s Model Master “Turn Signal Amber Metallic”. It will probably outlive me!

If the plastic is clear, just apply Tamiya Clear Orange and you’re done. If the plastic is some opaque color, paint the lens chrome silver, then overcoat with Clear Orange.
