Re: Paint color for inside model stock cars

Cars were lime-washed between trips in early years to disinfect them, but this was banned (sometime between the wars I believe) as it injured the animals. 


In later years they were washed out; after a few cleanings there was precious little paint left (if there had been any in the first place) so you ended up with a general impression of a patchy warm grey,  darker when freshly washed, lighter when it had had a chance to dry out.

The models I am going to paint are currently unfinished brass.  Unlike with grey resin, I think it extremely risky to ignore painting the interior.  I am leaning towards a tan-ish light grey, though I had also considered flat black.
