As I mentioned in a recent thread, I finally have an airbrush to use. I found it was a bit difficult to figure out what paint to use and where to locate it. A big reason for that is the landscape for model railroad paint has changed and changed again quite a bit over the past several years. The days of floquil are long gone. Testors model master is apparently out of production as well. The options we have today appear to be Badger Modelflex and Vallejo. While we do have some information about paint recommendations on the forum, its scattered around, and most of it is out dated now with the change up in availability. My goal here is to make a comprehensive, up to date list of what works well for acrylic air brush paints for Frisco modelers. Someone wrote a nice guide a while back that includes a table to help match old floquil colors, however it includes the now defunct Testors Model Master. It is handy though. https://www.testors.com/-/media/Dig...hash=A55D20518FF90D67DC26273BABC0336CC1DD72E4 I think my main paint source will end up being Badger. They have a nice color chart on their website. http://www.badgerairbrush.com/library/Paint Chart Images/Railroad Colors.gif I recently received my first for vials of paint and managed to put together a couple test subjects. While its easy enough to pick out a basic black or white color, the "perfect" Frisco Orange/White is always difficult to pin down, and to an extent, the gold color used on the B/Y diesels is as well. I'm going to create separate replies to address both of these schemes.
