Re: Related question: Vallejo equivalent to Polly Scale Light Freight Car Red

I can't make out what you mean by Vallejo 70.i62, 70.862 perhaps?

True-Color makes TCP-171 bottle, TCP-4013 spray can Weathered Black
Tamiya makes Rubber Black which is good for the Floquil Grimy Black, Xf-85 or LP-65 Lacquer or TS-82 spray can

Peter I have been using Vallejo paints since came on market.   In the Model Air or Model Color I find no equivalent.  Polly 
Scale Lt. Freight Car Red F414352.

Best suggestion I have is to start with a mix of Model Air Rust 71.080.  50%.  and Mahogany Brown 70.846. 50% which will provide the best  starting point I know.  You will have to change shade from there if desired.

And Bruce for Floquil “Grime”. Vallejo Model Color Black Grey. 70.i62.   I have no current suggestion for Weathered Black with the purplish black look.
