So I'm painting a 5th Gen....

A remote control 5th Gen Camaro, that is.
1/16 scale.

It's already primed and everything, but I have no clue what color to paint it.
Or perhaps try out a multi-color paint scheme?

I've thought about navy blue, flat black, and Sunoco car theme.....

I dunno, shoot me some ideas.

The Sunoco would be nice. A decent charcoal or one of the dark blues chops I've seen on this site would look good. IMO

I usually choose the less popular color schemes or I'd throw out more ideas.

Sunoco scheme would be cool if the decals are available

That's the problem with doing a special edition, no decals.

I think I've made a decision though.

I was gonna suggest a 1969 Pace car scheme, but if you have decided... I can't wait to see it!

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

I chose a two-color scheme, with a contrasting 3rd color pinstripe.
All normal GM colors used in the past.....

Base color: Medium Quasar Blue Metallic
Top color: Phantom Black Metallic
Pinstripe color: Torch Red

I think the combo will look cool when finished.

Base color being applied now!
