Thanks, Rick,
 
Yes, it's metalic, BRM green is a tough one to replicate. I use Tamiya British Green with a light dusting of Metallic Dark Blue on the final two coats.
 
Some British modellers swear by Maseratti Rifle Grey, but to me it looks... grey.
 
I've seen these cars in real life, and as an artist (commercial) I can still to this day remember that dark greeny blueish deap dark paint job.

Saw a good example at Donington but they wouldn't let me take paint scrapings. ;-)

Beautiful work as always Chris!
