I know this is the praverbial can of worms (Pun intended), but what are others preference for PC green?  I've used Poly Scale for faded green with decent results, although I still think it is too blue as far as I'm concerend.  So far, it's the only one I've tried.  I know several have mentioned Tamiya, Model Master paints, but wanted to see if someone on the list had a preference or color I was not aware of.  If so, what shade of green do you use from other manufacturers?  My local (For me that's an hour and a-half drive and the closet one!) hobby shop has a great selection of paints from various manufacturers.  I figured since I'll be headed that way in a week or two, might as well stock up while I can.
As already mentioned go with the PCRRHS PC Green as long as you do not mind using this non-water based color.
For years ModelFlex produced an excellent rendition of PC Green that I used exclusively for my PC green models but about two years ago they changed the mix and resulted in an almost mint green color.  Not sure if this was a bad batch or just bad quality control.  I have not checked any lately.
However I did try the PCRRHS green paint and I am very pleased with it. I have had excellent results with it. While I prefer to use water base paint I have found that this Scalecote paint very easy to work with. I mix it with the Scalecote thinner but wash my airbrush out with regular automotive lacquer thinner.
BTW for my finished cars I can not tell the difference between the PCRRHS PC Green and the "old" ModelFlex PC green.
