Yeah man. There are several brands out there. The best is House of Kolors ( HOK ) which is really HOK automotive paint, your base coat must be black for it to work. Black gold sells it bottled in small quantities for modeling. It comes in various colors. A little expensive and you need to airbrush it.
I have used the Duplicolor Mirage ( Purple to green used on the car in my Avatar ) paint set that you can get at Auto Supply stores. Its a 3 can set, base coat of flat black , the color change coat, and a can of clear coat. They make Purple to Green , Silver ( really a dark grphite ) to Green , Red to Blue, and a new one called Ice that is kinda a rainbow flake. I really want to try the Ice. BigPoppa is doing a car with this, can't wait to see it.
I also have seen a set at the Hardware store by Krylon, haven't used it or known anyone who has but it looked cool.
Remember you have to prime if you use Auto paints.
Hope this helps.

I actually did my bike with it with blue as a basecoat instead of black, looks a lot better. I hope to throw down a couple models the same way to display together at a show.

Krylon makes a three part spray can kit. I bought some about a month ago. It turns from magenta to gold. The shyt works tight as hell. It comes with a can black basecoat, the chamelion paint and a can of clear to make it look nice and wet. I got mine at Michaels and i bet you can get them at other art suppliy stores too.
Just puttin' my two cents and now I'm broke.
