For an upcoming ARDU MIRAGE build I'm going to need to buy or mix up some acrylic international orange. What can you good looking lot recommend?

Testors has it as an acrylic. I can't say that I've seen this colour on an ARDU Mirage. Was it used on some specific markings?
I'm not older than dirt, but I do remember when it was new.

The HPM decal sheet says the Orange is FS12197 International Orange.

It's actually BS381C 557 Light Orange. International Orange is a whole lot darker. There's a Gunze orange that's close enough.
