Here it is!

No, I'm not asking what color it is. I just want your idea on what decade the model is from that I'm going to build around this color.   (But not a quick build, as it's coming time for me to go down to the NC coast for two or three weeks.  No computer, no mail, and no workshop.  Whee! ) Laughing Out Loud

1950s.  I think the color is called Kuvakas pink.

A rare, delicately nuanced and highly desireable color appropriatre for use on any motor vehicle only in union with the corresponding shade of green.

And so we watch in silent admiration as a subtle and delicately contrasted paint job is flawlessly applied by a skilled operative with flair and artistry despite his having been sadly deprived of the gift of sight since birth. And as the minutes tick by, the bystanders' sympathy for his handicap quickly turns to an overwhelming sense of envy and an existential longing to possess a similar inbuilt immunity to visual trauma.

Man, it just tears your heart out. (Doesn't do the retinas a lot of good either).

But I have the impression that David H. is a kindly soul and I'm sure he has something much more delicate in mind. We just need to be on the alert, that's all I'm saying.

"....with the corresponding shade of green."

I believe the color charts call it "Tropical Bile".

This plant is called a "yukka".

That looks (and sounds) about right.
