Testor's website turned up nothing and searching through Tamiya's and Dragon's websites turned up a couple pearl whites but I need metallic. Even Duplicolor's website turned up nothing definitive.

What was it originally used on?

If it was used on a car, you should be able to find it here (by make and year):

I'm going to use it to do a custom paint job on a Chevy Nova. I was hoping to find a small bottle of hobby paint instead of a big spray can or quart of automotive paint.

Model car net friends talk about this brand of paint all the time--dunno if they'd have what you want or not, but you can look here:

at an auto paint store... check them out... it's not as expensive per ounce as model paint!

Also, there is usually a metallic white for some of the manufacturers on the plastikote or duplicolor rack at your local auto parts store...5 to 6 bucks for a sizeable rattle can of the stuff..

House of Kolor is another automotive paint manufacturer by the looks of it. They seem to have a much bigger selection than Duplicolor. If I can't find a spray can of metallic white at the local reputable auto parts store, I will probably order some from House of Kolor. When I finally get around to repainting my Saturn, I'll probably order the paint from them. Thanks again.

I'll probably hit up the local O'reilly Auto soon to see if I can find any. If not, I'll probably order some from House of Kolor as Snake recommended.

that the Home Depot seems to carry quite a selection of Rust-o-leum. I've had pretty good luck with it over the years. Test it first on the plastic you're painting though!

If you need a "plain" color (non-metallic), then the selection is great.

Duplicolor, Rustoleum, Krylon, House of Kolor, and the local auto parts stores all came up short in the hunt for metallic white. I have found a brand called Auto-Air, an automotive airbrushing paint available in small bottles, that sells metallic white. I believe an art supply store in Memphis stocks them so I plan to buy or order a bottle this weekend and I'll post if the paint is worth it or not.
