As with the Enterprise-B model, I referenced the paint instructions from the larger 1/1400 AMT/ERTL kit 8001 USS Enterprise-C model, as well as photos of the Enterprise-C/Yamaguchi studio model to help me paint this model.
Some of the recommended colors didn't appear to be that accurate, so I played with mixing my own colors until I came up with some colors thing that looked somewhat more accurate:
- the first "blue" is a combination of Testors 1162 Matt Sky Blue mixed with small portions of Testors 1111 Blue and Testors Model Master Flat White FS37875.
The next lighter shade of blue is a mix of approximately 1 part Model Master Flanker Blue Grey to 3 parts Flat White FS37875 with a hint of Testors Blue 1111.

The last of the tri-color paint scheme is Testors Model Master Light Grey FS36495
