On my original badge the colour appears to be more of a metal red?

Sorry yes you are right. They do a red too it's called vermillion

But I've only used that on my J tank badges.

Be careful how you apply it Mal, as it is very thin. Just keep the badge level. Easily scrapes off if you get it around the edges.

Cheers - I bought the paint but then had a brainwave and used red lense repair tape - carefully trimmed with a craft knife luckily enough the T500K badges are flat - more than pleased with the result

One advantage is that you don't have to worry about brush strokes - I tried it first using solvent based Candy Gipsy Red but it looked crap and yet that worked fine on the GT250K but they just needed freshening up - another advantage of the tape is that it comes off easily as I have two paint sets , one red and one blue and the red badges don't look right on the blue tank .
