Hi Anto,
No, I didn't get a bottle of touch-up paint. (Anto, I wouldn't be asking if i did would I? ;)). I was trying to cycle a very overgrown path across a field and hit a molehill of all things. As I was going very slowly, I fell off..............right into a large clump of nettles and my cleate must have caught the crossbar :-[  Me in short sleeved jersey and cycling shorts and not a blood dock-leaf anywhere around either :'(  And yes, my first thought was to see if the bike was OK.

I have usually tried to find a reasonably close color in a nail polish bottle.  With the built in brush it is easy and convenient to touch up.  I do not have the blue bike you are talking about so I can't suggest a brand or color.

Janet,

I have not posted for a while, but I have just been hunting for a match for my blue RST.  The paint finish on mine is not great, lots of random rust and pealing paint,  the other 2 thorn frames i own the paint is much better.

I used humbrol enamel met 222 from hobby craft.  It is not 100% but is is very close.

All the best.

Peter.
