Re: GM&O color recommendation


Jerry, The only info I can find deals with Accu-Paint. This was in the chart in Ed Hawkins RPC #3.
Postwar Red Oxide 1 part #12 Oxide Brown + 1 part #54 Rich Oxide Brown
1940's Red Brown            #12 Oxide Brown
#12 long discontinued and of course Accu-Paint is out of business. Tru-Color has some Oxide Browns. I too wish that Modelflex would add the Oxide shades along with Mineral Brown & Red.

I'm building last year's Naperville gift which is for a GM&O boxcar built in 1940 or 1942 (two number series possible). What's a good color recommendation for GM&O for this era into the '50s? I'd prefer a Modelflex color as it's the most available but any you use.
