Finding the right flag color

I need to paint some aluminum with the American flag colors. Google says the red and blue are ‘old glory red’ and ‘old glory blue’. I am having a hard time finding those exact colors in acrylic paint for my airbrush. Does anyone know the closest, commonly available match?

The Wikipedia article on the flag has the following which may help:

The current internal style guide of the State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs specifies PMS 282C blue and PMS 193C red, and gives RGB and CMYK conversions generated by Adobe InDesign.[95]
