Boston and Maine Paint
« on: April 11, 2013, 08:13:37 PM »
Hi there ... I'm looking to re-paint and decal  some Boston and Maine equipment to add to my 1950s era New England themed layout.  Does anyone have a recommendation for a specific Polly Scale acrylic to match the B&Ms maroon scheme?

I don't use water-based acrylic paints for anything except weathering.  But TrueColor paints line of solvent-based paints has all the B&M colors available. Those paints are excellent (but not water-based).  But if you insist on water-based paints then I have no recommendations.
