If you are an oil based non-acrylic type paint modeler like me there are some more recent post Floquil era offerings.
- Mr. Hobby~Mr. Color #7 Brown. Great for the transition era molder post '45 until pre-'61. It is a bit darker and redder than Floquil Zinc Chromate. Excellent choice.
- TESTORS 1/4 oz bottles Flat Grapefruit. This is the traditional PRR FCC that most guy go goo-goo over. It is more representative of the Red Caboose color, not my favorite but an excellent choice. So post 1929 thru 1945 (or later if not repainted)
- Best Stand By TESTORS Rust in the 1/4 oz bottles but the color needs tweaked while shadowing with my techniques. Great basic Freight car Red.
Let's not look at a bottle and get a brain freeze ... Look at the color and use the force, Lester.
For you Acrylic guys, I can't help you as I hate the stuff.
Why Yes I have done some modeling...

I am about to move a resin Funaro & Camerlengo container Flat Car kit 8120 to the paint shop. The instructions for the car body state Scalecoat PRR Freight Red, a red moving toward maroon, to my eyes when viewing paint chips. I am guessing containers, DD1A, the same color. Is this correct?
Somehow I got deleted from this group in late May. I guess someone didn't like me. Jail is a lonely place.
