    Hi Ray, welcome.

    Which kit are you building? The Stearman had various schemes and the shades of blue especially, were often varied. If you can grab the paint numbers from your instruction sheet, you can find conversions to other paint manufacturers using a conversion website of app. There are a list of conversion sites on this forum here: http://www.scale-models.co.uk/threads/paint-conversion-helpers.26008/
