Re: SP Freight Car Color.

I use Trucolor SP freight car red. I think your mix seems quite close. Tony and Tim are probably the best to get the best information off.

Tony, Paul and other SP Modelers,

Modeling the B&O on the east coast means a limited number of SP cars.  Two are getting ready to see service on my layout and are literally primed. I am seeking your input on a decent color match. Not exact, just decent. Attached are photos of recent in-progress builds sprayed with Vallejo Brunt Red 70.814 much thinned for airbrushing. What are your thoughts on adjusting the color? I added a Kadee UP boxcar and a black hopper for color reference.  Thank you for your input.
