does anyone know the best gray paint to use in the middle of the lightning stripes on my nyc freight diesels? i can't seem to match the prototype. thank you. penncentralpete
I passed your question along to Jim Six, my long-time friend who grew up with NYC F's in Amherst, OH and has created some of the finest HO scale New York Central diesel models to date.
Here is Jim's reply:
Model Flex NYC Light Gray is EXACTLY correct for fresh painted locomotive. However, the light gray faded somewhat quickly. White needs to be added to match the faded look. Good luck!
I hope this helps!
