Hi - just got a brand new Autoart Carrera GT in white but I noticed a small paint chip on the side panel gap of one of the doors.  It is a small paint chip, but its noticeable.  Rather than send it back and possibly get another QC issue or something probably worse, I thought maybe a dab of white paint would "hide" the chip.  I am not much of a modder so don't even know where to start of which paint to use.  Can someone here please here suggest the right white paint colour for the CGT and which paint maker I should choose?  I don't need a lot so a small pot should do it.

Many thanks!

Check out Revell and Tamiya's paints, they have a lot of shades. Depending on the size and the place of the chip, you may get away with only a drop of paint on the end of a toothpick.

Tamiya X2 gloss white should work fine, I've used it on other white models. I don't have a white carrera GT but from looking at pictures, it seems to be a neutral looking bright white similar to the X2 so give it a try.
