[Non-DoD Source] [RealSTMFC] PRR container DD1A color

Gatwood, Elden J SAD


I find Scalecoat a little dark for my tastes. I prefer Modelflex Light Tuscan Oxide Red for a late forties-early fifties Circle Key-era paint job. I do not believe any DD1A containers or flats were repainted in Shadow Keystone P&L, if any were even still extant by that date.

I am about to move a resin Funaro & Camerlengo container Flat Car kit 8120 to the paint shop. The instructions for the car body state Scalecoat PRR Freight Red, a red moving toward maroon, to my eyes when viewing paint chips. I am guessing containers, DD1A, the same color. Is this correct?
