Who can touch up paint well?

I have an '85 Trek 600 with a beautiful Joe Bell Imron paint job. And I have some pretty ugly scratches on the chainstay from throwing a chain.

I know how to touch it up but, try as I might, I don't have the skill to touch it up without it looking ugly. (I've tried, but I don't have the steady hand or talent). So I'm looking for someone who knows how to match the color and then apply the paint. (Imron paint is best touched up with Testor's model enamel - brushed or sprayed.) Doesn't have to be perfect or even close to perfect - just better than what I can do! I'll pay a fair price for this little job.

Know anyone?
