Hi All, Total newbie to paint codes here so bear with me. I’ve been looking through this thread trying to wrap my head around the world of paint matching and paint codes and mixing. The reason being is I just bought a Stapleton Cobra Head phaser kit that I’m going to be putting together. (It’s going to be the side arm for my Life Size Lt. Commander Data mannequin which I will post in a separate thread later). I’m trying to do some prep work before it comes in and get the supplies I need. Looking at the paint codes above it looks like this is the way to go for a Cobra Head:
- Plasti-kote # 7173 = 85 GM Code 15 - (in Canada) Motomaster 47-8300-8/47-0283-6 Dupli-color Silver Sand Metallic / Dupli-color Medium Marblehead Metallic
The Dupli-color ones I can get from pretty much anywhere (I live in the US, specifically in Massachusetts so getting a lot of this paint shouldn’t be a big problem), but I’m confused about the Plasti-Kote 7173, it sounds like we can’t get this anymore? Is the Duplicolor Paint a replacement for the Plasti-kote? Do you use both the Dupli-color paints mentioned above, as in mist one over the other?
I’m sorry if this seams really derivative to a lot of you, but I just want to be clear before I start spending money. Thanks so much for your patience
