Default Plastic Transparent shader

Hi,
I'm trying to create a syringe model in Maya and am struggling trying to recreate the shaders.
To get Plastic type materials, do I use a blinn with the reflectons down or a Phong or what?

The 'Real' problem I'm having is tring to recreate the shader for the transparent body.... I have tried modyfiying a Glass shader, but couldn't get it right, then tried a white blinn with transparency up, but none of them look correct...

I'm just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction here....
Regards Scraggy

Default Best yet.

Hi, Thanks a lot, but to be honest if I can't make the shader I need & do it myself.
Then Highend is the first place I go. (and some obscuer ones too)
If you would like them plz PM me.

your link to the "clock face" didn't work - But I know the one you are talking about, and yes good idea if I can remove the blue it may be a good start - thanks - I'll get it now, skipped over it earlier loking at plastcs, but found no better
then forgot about it - thanks i'll let u know if i can sort it.

EDIT:- Clock Face no good
Darn, just looked and its not a shader in the sense i mean - its a clock a psd file and model really, very simple set up and gorgeous. but the shader doesnt look right to me, unless you know a way?

Anyway for now, think I may try adding some very tiny specles of white using a node or texture, but more of transparent, but the hard thing for me is th sort o refractions reflecs thy have in 'Dim' light, wish i knew more on making shaders..anyone know whay the start nodes are?
