paint colours

Post by 2502 » Tue Jun 06, 2017 4:56 pm

Hi,
Can anyone help with the best Humbrel/Pheonex paint colour for LNER road vehicles.[blue].
Secondly does anyone manufacture replacement plastic sleeves for the axles on Mainline J72s ?

If you put "Mainline J72" into the search box at the top right 2502 you will get a number of posts relating to this problem and assorted ideas for solutions.

Phoenix P70 Oxford Blue would be my choice with Humbrol H104 Oxford Blue (Mat) if you cannot get the Phoenix paint.

Phoenix matched their colours to items and samples in the possession of the NRM and are as a result pretty accurate.
