Check to see if Alclad makes a metallic blue. I know they make several transparent colors that are meant to be used to create heat marks on metallic exhaust pipes, and I thought they had a blue as one of them. If not, you can always fall back on the old method of painting it silver and then over coating it with Tamiya Transparent Blue til you get the hue you like.

Alclad does make a transparent blue and green.  That's how I always do my Interior on Japanese aircraft.  Spray the transparent blue/green over the metallic coat.  You will want to mix a little of the transparent green as well to get the correct shade whether its the Alclad or Tamiya colors.  I suggest trying out on a piece of scrap before committing to your model to get the shade you're satisfied with.
