We achieved a close match to an AC&F paint chip of
CB&Q Standard Red (circa June 1941) with a mix of 75%
Box Car Red and 25% Oxide Red (all Scalecoat).

I need to paint a CB&Q box car and would like your
recommendations on the best paint match for Q's
Mineral Red. I am a Scalecoat II paint user, so I'd
prefer your thoughts on a mix-match using Scalecoat
colors. Thanks in advance for your expert help.
