Re: Sunshine NP kit #52.1

The True Color NP brown for pre WW II is nearly a Hershey dry cocoa color, very dark.  I used the Tru-Scale concrete, yellow and white to lighten the color.  I have used Tru Color browns of other railroads with some other colors mixed in for a brownish red color on other NP boxcars, including the 52.1 kits.

If some one has this kit will you look on the prototype sheet and post the car color for pre-WWII? I believe the color was of a brown hue. What brand of paint paint and color is recommended and if Tru-Color or other paint  has the right shade? Thank you for your time. Robert Deis
