      I'm trying to decide if Testors' Gloss Yellow #1214 is a good representation for Northeast's Yellowbird paint. To my eyes it seems a tad too dark. Any thoughts? Thanks.

      Do some testing to see how it dries, then add a little white to achieve the shade you prefer.

      Perhaps Tamiya TS-47 Chrome Yellow?

      Thanks for the tip. Tamiya is hard to come by where I am but I'll hunt some down.
