Default British Racing Green touchup paint

I went to a few of my local auto parts stores looking for a small bottle or pen of BRG touchup paint for my 'new to me' XJ8.

None of them had it, so I thought to visit a scale model/hobby store and see if they might have anything. Low and behold, they have a small 1/2 oz. bottle of "IMP JAPAN ARMY NAVY GREEN" put out by Model Master. It is an enamel paint.

I swear it looks as spot on as you can get. I'm only planning to use it to fill in small nicks and dings, so a toothpick will probably be the applicator.

+1 on the Dr. ColorChip.

I bought some for both of my cars and the color match was perfect. Even on the Jag which has a pearl paint.

I would recommend a good wax job after the paint has dried to protect your repairs.
