You're right surface.  I recall a post over on MCM (your's Dan) where someone pointed that out and indicated it's Arcadian Blue.

MCW has this color

The blue used on the Miles/Hulme Mk II in 1966 was not the same shade as the blue used on Gulf cars.  I believe it was Ford Night Mist Blue from the 1964 Mustang color list.

On a small enough model it probably wouldn't matter, but on a 1/12 car it should be noticeable.

Try Gravity colors.  They make colors specific for race cars.  I believe this is one they carry.

Anyone have any suggestions for a paint match for the Ken Miles #1 car? A company named Magnifire has released the Trumpeter 1/12 kit at a much more reasonable price and I'd love to do the #1 car. Zero Paints has 1 ounce exact match bottles, but I'd probably need 3 or 4 to do a big car like this.
