Default Trying to match Mikado's neon yellow / orange colors

Has anyone found a paint that matches Mikado's Neon Yellow and Neon orange colors for their stock canopy? I want to paint my fin but it will have to be a match to look right since I have the yellow / orange boom.

Those are going to be neon dies such as SEM color horizon or House of Kolor NE series. They will have to be painted over white but you might have to make a couple test panels to see exactly how many coats to achieve the proper color.

I just did this to match the tail fin to my Trex canopy

Wow, that looks good. Did you use a clear coat?

Yes I fly nitro so without using clear coat it would eat it right off. If you wanted it to just be somewhat shiny but not glossy you could use a flattened in the clear like I did to give it a semigloss look.

Looks great. I did end up with matching colors but never finished the painting before I wrecked. I now have a red and white canopy so once I re fiberglass the damaged yellow parts I'll re paint. I'll post my results and hope it turns out close to how good yours looks.

Looks great indeed. You really make great yellow color, for these picture shows, I think you can use photo resizer to make them look more visual.
