Question

Would anyone be able to advise on an appropriate paint colour match for the Murphy Models 071 battleship grey?

Also the yellow for the front panel please?

Humbrol number 27 Revell number 77 or Tamiya xf24 I think are the nearest

FYI I used Humbrol 164 Satin dark sea Grey, Satin paint goes on a bit nicer too.

If you are repainting an orange one I would suggest removing all the Printed Markings off as the outline will show through repaint.

Robert

I can get you all the grey to change your loco from whatever into a grey 7071/7078

Decals and numbering already on the body

HI George and Dave,

Thanks for your help. I am only removing the grab rails off the front of 7071 o just need to do a bit of touching up. @WRENNEIRE if you are at the Raheny show I would be interested in spares for MM locos, mayber even an all grey body too!
