I thought RAL 2000 but so much depends on the monitor/screen rendering.
So this is what RAL 1011 (brown/beige) looks like.Hi Dave,
I think that you are right to try different colours. The points to note are that the colours fade with age - effects of weathering, it also depends on whether you are modelling freshly painted stock. My photo was from a visit to Rugen where the coaches had been stored out in the open for some time. There were a number of differences in shades of colour especially with the green stock.
Agreed. It's a lot easier painting locos black!Colour is just so subjective, looking at the Rugen Bogie Coach pics in 2008 they are to my eye as I saw them in 2011. And yes the plant pot is somewhat more like it. But in the pics we have different colours which will be the case with stock left out all year long and painted in different years. Our stock gets left inside most of the time and if you left it next to a window for a long time you would likely have a coach with differing colours each side. This happened to a friends LGB Blue Coach that he displayed in his Bedroom Window for around 8 yeats without turning it round. Went almost whity blue from a rich deep of the original. Relying on a pc screen can be a bit of an issue, but if a colour seen as in the Colour Chart linked looks ok to the eye for what you are trying to achieve go for it . You are very likely to be not too far out.
