Closest Modelflex Red for M-K-T bright red (known as Barriger red)
Posted by mopacmike on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 3:28 PM

Since it can be difficult to ascertain true paint colors on a computer monitor..  Anyone out there have experience painting a Barriger Red MKT locomotive from the  late sixties - early seventies?  Trying to determine which Modelflex red paint color would be the closest match without actually purchasing 4 or 5 different bottles online. The red on these locomotives seems to be a deeper red than the red that was used to paint locomotives during the Deramus era.

I've not done it, but I've heard Modelflex Caboose Red is pretty close.
