I just received my new subframe for my old 4-6-0. As I'm going to install RC and batteries in it, I decided to repaint it as well. I really didn't like the maroon/silver and gold paint job though... The maroon fields on the cab and tender were masked. I washed all the parts thoroughly with dish washing detergent and then primed with red etch primer. Then a shot of Stynylrez black primer. I went for a black, gold and maroon finish.</p> I have the smokebox left to paint in graphite and then the interior walls green.
