Prr maroon red paint

Post by Murad »

Hi everyone!
Could you help me to find the most correct prr maroon red paint?
The biggest problem is that i live in russia. So there is no popular the US produced model paint here for some reason :)
But here we have a lot of other paints:
Revell
Tamiya
Mr.hobby
Humbrol

Did somebody use them?
Or does somebody know the prr maroon red RAL code?

I found the Pennsey Maroon paint only at Badger Air-Brush MODELflex paint #16-22.

But I didn't find it at a color conversion chart. The only one I know with MODELflex paints is MRH - Guide to acrylic painting - in a post-Floquil world.

The closest color is perhaps Revell 184 Matt Leather Brown RAL 8027.
Lok-n-Roll.de - we send worldwide :wink:

Sorry Murad, what is PRR maroon red? What do you need it for?
Do you mean PRR Tuscan Red?
Tuscan Red is #7C3030 (hex)
Closest RAL color is 3011.

You need Tuscan red for 99% of PRR passenger cars. Boxcar red is close enough.
The maroon was used for a special paint scheme which had the window band in a different color than the rest of the car. I have a book about PRR passenger cars.

Here is a picture of the only use of the maroon red paint on PRR, "Fleet of Modernism" paint scheme.

Is this what you are working on?
If not then we can drop the maroon and find out what you need (Tuscan red). The PRR Passenger car Painting and Lettering book has it all, incl. color samples.

F@#$!!!!
I wish to have enough skills to make this paint scheme on hp cars, but i'm pretty sure that i'll ruin it ((
PRR tuscan red for 1950's passenger cars will be ok
