NYPD Colors

Postby wack137 on Thu Oct 02, 2014 10:44 am

I'm building a 1968 Plymouth Police Car. I want to make it NYPD. Does anyone know the color green that they used?
Thanks, Ed...

I just used Testor's Gloss Green when I built that Jo-Han kit with the NYPD decals.
I want to do one of AMT's 70 Fords as an NYPD cruiser too

Sure wish some one could find the tooling for that Jo-Han 68 Fury Police cruiser kit again!

I seem to recall someone (Tom Sheehy?) stating that Krylon Hunter Green was a good match for NYPD green of that era. I could be wrong, but I believe that is correct... HTH.

Hey, I'm actually here.

Yes, Dave, Krylon Hunter green is pretty close. Its deeper than the Testor's gloss green.

The actual color is a dark jade color. If you have the paint code you can have it custom mixed, but it all depends how much you want to spend on paint.

Here's a couple of pics that show the color well.
