Re: Rapido single sheathed box cars B&O Brown from Green
I used my standard matte varnish (https://bomodeling.com/2020/04/30/developing-my-painting-and-decaling-techniques-for-ho-scale-freight-cars/ ) with a few drops of Vallejo Red Brown and Vallejo Fire Red to get the color to shift. I think that’s how the color wheel works, to change a green (blue and yellow mixed) use more red to shift the color away from green. I think it came pretty close to a brown I can weather and darken to look good in my fleet.
The photos attached are all taken under 5000k LED lights (layout and paint booth). I had to add two coats and the overspray was very pink While still wet, I used a wet microbrush to wipe the pink overspray from the lettering as it was way too pink to look appropriate. This caused some blotching I hope to cover with some dirt and soot in further weathering I hit it with untinted, clear matte as a last coat while still wet to try to cover the blotching.
