When I was a kid, Testors had a paint set just for modeling locomotives and railroad related stuff. It had colors like; smoke, grime, rust, ect. I haven't been able to find a set like that anywhere. Do you know if the company still makes it?

I found some kits on their site. But none for train colors.

I guess they make more $ on individual bottles.:rolleyes:
They do sell them.

I just went thru this not too long ago.

I bought some Floquil Tuscan Red for my PRR passenger cars and Floquil Conrail Blue for a U36 I'm rebuilding. I was all worried about what color yellow and gray I should use when I paint my O scale Union Pacific E7s here shortly.
Years of building military aircraft made me kind of anal as far as painting accurate schemes.:p

The problem with Floquil paints is they are laquer based, and I would love to switch over to acrylic paints. I already have made the switch with some of my aircraft colors.

Acrylics are so much easier to clean up.:thumbsup:

I guess Polly S paints are the easiest to work with. I've had no problem with them.

HTH,

Ian
