LS&I paint colors

Unread post by trnwatcher »

I've finally acquired 2 N-Scale RSD-15's and want am looking for what would be the best "red" for these LS&I gators. Been looking through many online photo resources to get good side shots but seeing most of these pics are from older slides or scanned prints the colors vary greatly. Any help would be appreciated.

Customer just showed me these last night! Nice job. As soon as I get my N-Scale RSD-15's painted and decaled I post pics.
