      Randy, I am pretty sure it was Tamiya color PS-7. It is for Polycarbonate, It dries dull, Then you have to gloss coat it before you can put the decals. I did those cars about 3 years ago. There are more pictures in My work bench

        Hi Randy, Tamiya TS96 (Flourescent Orange) is the same colour as PS7..........the TS version is made for styrene, and dries to a gloss finish. if you are applying decals, you can place them directly on the TS, then clearcoat if you wish, This saves a step as with PS, you will need to clearcoat before applying the decals, and then apply clearcoat again for protection.

        TS will also adhere to styrene better than the PS (polycarbonate spray), and on some of the static model forums, there are guys who have had some bad reactions when clearcoating the PS sprays.

        Cheers

        PS ....Robert, both of these look great .......I must admit, I like the #17 car more....looks more "period correct"
