What colors (preferably in the bottle) are real close to the light orangy-brown and the creamy color in this pic?

Suggestions? Thanks!

Model Master Radome Tan for the light half, and Wood for the darker color? Maybe Wood mixed with a little yellow.

I think I'd go with a Tan (with a bit of yellow mixed in) for the darker color and a Cream for the lighter color.

What about the Tamiya acrylics. The Desert Tan or Buff ( or a mixture ) may be fine.

How bout orange and white? white for the cream color, and white mixed with orange for the orange color.

You may want to brush paint semi-gloss/flat/gloss coats overtop afterwards to get the desired sheen.

Actually I was wrong... It's butterscotch. I would check with your local auto painters and see who has it. Just take a printed picture of the cars interior with you.

Beats me. Thats why I said to take a copy of the picture to an auto paint store. They'll be able to tell you.
