    BIG BOY 4014 . Color references?

    Thanks for your answers too, Y3a and deanej. I think that Vallejo could have a very similar color to graphite for the smokebox. I have to check that.

    Thanks a lot for your answers. The Great Divide, I wish it was as simple as that, believe me... :) Yes, may be it looks black at first sight but I know it is not solid black as flyboy2610 has pointed out. And as you all have suggested I will do some tests with graphite-grey for the smokebox...

    Could you help me to identify this coach , please?

    Hello, I have received this coach and I don't know which kind of coach it is exactly, or in which train it was used. I know this is a Walthers H0 model, but nothing apart from that. The model didn't have a box. Could you give me some clue on this coach? Thanks in advance. Kind Regards, Juan.
