paint for Peco grain hoppers.
« on: November 22, 2019, 09:44:39 PM »
I have acquired a batch of the Peco KNR-67 Grain Wagon, some un-painted and some part painted. I want to paint all of them in the blue used on the BRT hire fleet.
Does anybody out there know shade they should be and what proprietary paint I can use; rattle can or brush; to paint my wagons?
