I used Tamiya green brush-on acrylic. It looks pretty good (except where the red rocket next to it ate into the finish and made red spots - darned hot cars and acrylic paint!)

BTW - I think YORS has the scan of the original green gnome decal sheet.

Don't worry to much about it just, visit your local dollar store, pick up some assorted St. Patricks day stuff and build your own little jewel :roll: uses the same 13mm motors anyway;)
