Damask Red



Semi-Retired; more time for trains.

I have been using Damask Red (BR Crimson) auto spray paint as sold by a national car factors, however it seems it is no longer on their books. As I appreciate in real life coaches and wagon of the same colour are actually different colours due mixing and fading, so I am content to move to a different red, as long at it similar, does anybody have any experience in an alternative that is a close match. I have seen Vauxhall Burgundy and Ford Burgundy, are close - thoughts please.

Assuming and whenever anything re-opens any good quality Auto Paint supplier should be able to mix a quantity of Damask Red Gloss Paint (Code RD05), try Halfords they often come up trumps mixing and supplying paint mixes and matches in Rattle Cans.
