has anyone found the correct shade of white for the frame on the 2018 ATAS. I have a couple of white touch up pens from white cars but they are not the same shade.
The ATAS seems to be a very white white.

Kev - if it's the same white as used on the 2017 tricolour then Tamiya make small pots for their scale model. I bought a pot of the blue (not the same as yours) and a pot of the white, and I was very happy with the match of the white. And of course theres no messing about with 3-part glitter paint. The model paint is good enough for small dings but would probably be noticeable on anything as large say as 3 or 4 mm.
I'm quite close to you if you want to borrow my pot of white.

After you have touched it in put some paint protective film up that beem , as It gets blasted with debri off the front wheel and you will be forever touching it in, and the paint is very thin..

Thanks chaps for the advice.
The centre stand and the frame above it do indeed get a blasting from the front wheel. I think I will do what you suggest, paint it over the winter and apply protective film

If you get stuck Kev, you could try and get the RAL number from someone who knows or take your AT or a lump of it to your local paint specialist who will match and tell you the RAL no and supply the paint you need.

Cheers
