Check out the reference section and the workshop paint threads, theres alot of discussion on the paint and even pantone colour refs.
Kind Regards,

Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

There isn't much discussion on the color (paint codes and such) for the 2005-2009 TARDIS, so the best bet for a blue for that one is to save this huge, high-res image of the Old Girl. Then print the image out (take it to a printing place if necessary to get a good quality laser printing of it), and then take the printout to a paint store and have them color-match things on their computers. From there than can mix the paint to get as close as possible.

Your browser may resize the image to fit your window, but if you get one of those magnifying lens/glass thingies when you place your pointer over the image, click on it to see just how huge it is. Right-clicking on it to use "Save As..." will save the image at full-size no matter if you're looking at the resized or full-sized version.

I used this paint code at lowes and it ended up pretty nice.  Have a look at my build for pictures.
