Hey guys,

I'm installing a low nose on my Atlas Montana Rail Link SD35 and am having trouble matching the paint on the loco. Does anybody have any advice or a paint match for me? I prefer to use water-based paint if possible.

Thanks for any and all help,
Just mix and match for a while, I'm sure you'll get it eventually. I like polly scale paints for water based, they are nice.
