I use mostly Modelflex but Polly Scale has some colors I like too, Aged or
Tarnished Black (can't remember exactly) and their several BC reds and

that I had purchased as a teen, I purchased the Badger Anthem one year at
the NMRA National Train Show at a very good price. They had just been
introduced and was designed for water based paints. Just the ticket.

You will also want to use a lower air-pressure, 18-20 PSI. Also stir, do
not shake. You know where I am if you have more questions.

Any highlights from Springfield?
