You can have any colour you like, as long as it's black. :)
Seeing so many green ones around, black would look good for a change.
Perhaps a dull green like saxony locomotives but then you may need to dull the red too.
I have an Otto myself that I plan on painting black.

Go easy on the paint thickness. It is almost running. Also, blow off any dust first before spraying.

Otto eh?
I like these locos, and have one. Surprisingly smooth compared to my late lgb german made porters with the same drives. Possibly center of gravity.

Maroon is nice.
Crimson.
Chocolate.



Common though it is, a lovely gloss forest green, perhaps with striping, gold, red, black, yellow?

A good paint job changes everything.
Depends on the feel you're seeking. Pride of the branchline, hard working, neglected, etc.
