I have a FMS 1700 Foamy Corsair and it needs a bit of a touch up .Someone told me that the Humbrol 182 was a good match but when I went to buy some it is discontinued .Anyone know what paint would be match or near match for the FMS 1700 Corsair

Get B&Q to mix a tester pot to match.

I second the idea for going to B and Q, if you take the smallest part of the plane you want the paint to match they will scan the colour and mix a small quantity of emulsion - they dont offer enamel, the cost is approx £2.00 for a tub large enough to repaint the whole plane, I find the silk finish is more resistant to scrapes than matt.I have used this service for years and find the match spot on.
