Try to keep it simple because I am not sure you'll ever get two guys in the same space (including cyber space) to agree on color.

If I were doing a New Haven or Bangor and Aroostook State of Maine car (say the F&C kit) I would choose TESTOR (in the ¬ľoz. bottles) Gloss Red, Gloss White and Dark Blue. I may be tempted to darken the blues so I would test it first. I think you will come out okay.

I use solvent based paints so YMMV. You'll find that this series of paints is even flowing and dries hard like an enamel should, so it will take a beating.
