Hi Chad,

True Color paint is an excellent paint. Lark Gray and Scarlet Red should work. Sea Foam green if you're modeling the interior. They're airbrush ready.  No need to thin, but the do also provide a thinner.

Thanks, Nick! What should I thin it with?
Comment by Nick Lorusso on February 29, 2016 at 3:41pm

Dark gray will work and thin it just a little.

Comment by Chad Gustafson on February 28, 2016 at 3:47am
Thats awesome, thanks guys! Would the light or dark lark gray work best?

Not to put too fine a point on the paint brand name, but its Tru-Color. I use it a lot and really like it. Its a solvent based paint and dries quickly. They say you can mask it in 15 minutes, but I always give it an hour or so or even over night if I am not in a big hurry.

Try-Color paint SP Lark gray and Scarlet Red are good colors for the New NWP

I'm to be starting a HO scale NWP 1922-sister locomotive project here soon, and I was curious to know what color/make/type of paint I should use? Most websites point to Floquil SP scarlet gray but its getting harder and harder to find, and more expensive. Any good alternatives to get that light scarlet gray? Thank you! <3
