Anybody make a filament that comes close in color to Allis-Chalmers orange? Or how about creme?

Check out atomicfilament.com. It is all really good stuff, and not a fly by night operation. If it says in stock, it ships fast and their colors are quite vibrant. A little more expensive than most, but well worth it in my opinion.

Ive been using Paramount 3D exclusively for the past 6 months. Fast/Free delivery, and no quality concerns. PETG has been great quality (all my Airfest rockets had AV bays, nosecone bays, and shock cord retainers) by them. MIght see if their Mclaren Orange is what you are looking for. From the Allis we had as a kid, it is probably too orange. CWBULLET's Polymaker PETG looks about right.

I love Paramounts ABS, PETG, and PLAs. They have lots of color choices. The McLauren Orange is too bright and the Volcano Orange is too dark.
