For the record, there was a Zircon blue which was non-metallic available from 1965 to 1974. A metallic Zircon blue became available from 1981. Mentioned not because it's not a suitably close colour but just to dispel the myth that it is Zircon blue.

Zat is because zer myth flew too near to ze candle.

Don't blame me. Blame the Ault & Wiborg paint catalogue.

:lol::lol::lol: I have a feeling these guys just ground (grined however you spell it... sorry I'm kneeling on the floor typing this... all our chairs have gone to the new place) up old crayons for the colour of most of these vehicles. Try Zircon and keep weathering, shading etc until it gets close. You could try Corgi and see if they'll let you know what they painted their recent releases with. Also a nice colour to start working with.
