You might try Tamiya Chrome Yellow. Camel Yellow is probably too dark and Lemon too light

MM had the blue in a rattle can I'm pretty sure as I had done an A-4 and F-11 using it. But it's been years.

Assuming you are doing something other than the earliest Angels, Model Master has Blue Angel Blue enamel in a can.
As for the yellow, I think Tamiya's Chrome Yellow would be pretty close. Just don't spray Tamiya over Model Master - Tamiya is a much hotter synthetic lacquer and will "melt" the Model Master enamel. Ask me how I know...

Hi, Craig -

The best thing to use are two Testors colors -- Gloss Yellow 1214 and Gloss Dark Blue 1211.

I have used these colors to finish many many model BlueAngels and won places in shows and sold them to the pilots , etc. The blue will darken a bit as time goes by. and indoors it is a very good color anyway.

If you really want to get closer use Plasti-kote 1134 Royal Blue .. The Blues do or did. Good luck with your project, George

I think the problem will be trying to match as close as possible the paint to the yellow in the decals, especially when it darkens against the blue paint.

The lettering is the same color as the yellow details on the plane, right?
