Krylon camo color for track

Hi Guys, I know Krylon camo brown is the prefered color for track but is there a color that is equivalent that I could send through an airbrush, preferably Tamiya? I hit some track last night with camo brown, love the color for ties but man there's a lot of over spray.  I'd like to use the same color and flatness but apply with more control with the airbrush.  Tamiya roof brown looks similar but wanted to get your guys take.

Thanks,
Mario

Depending on your skills or how much work you can tolerate, you can decant that Krylon and put the paint through your airbrush.  Win-win.

Search for "decant" and you'll probably find that thread.

Decant it from the spray can, and airbrush it to your heart's content.

Yup.  Decanting is the way to go.

Cheerio!

I think this is the thread MK is referencing:

I prefer the Peteski method of a straw rather than puncturing the can.  I'm just not a fancy as him and his collection of nozzles from every country and manufacturer.  Kind of like a spoon collection!

LOL, my nozzle obsession was even immortalized in a banner!

lol Thats great, want me to send you the cap and straw from a penetrating oil where the straw falls out immediately while trying to use it in tight spaces? oh how I miss you PB Blaster and your folding straws...

LOL! No thanks, already have way too many.  :D

Yes, I also have an old WD40 can with that loose straw.  Folding straw is/was a brilliant idea.  :(
