    Default Central Maine & Quebec Blue

    I am looking for some help matching the CM&Q blue on the SD40-2F's. To me it looks like RI blue is a good match...Any ideas out there? Thanks, Jim

    The title says little so everyone is looking into it , and then realizes it's something they don't know the answer to. I'm sure everyone here would like to help you , just don't know how.

    Added a photo , maybe that makes it easier, I do love the color scheme. It's a bit more turkoois then RI blue .

    When I compare several model paint colors in Photoshop using a pipet , 2 of them are really close. Both are from Vallejo , the RGB numbers say the Russian Air Force Blue is closest.

    I guess the color just needs to be close , in prototype not all the paint came from the same source and would have been a little different for every shop the engines came from. Might even be prototypical to use both colors on different engines.

    Yes , Close is good enough. I'm just doing one of the SD40-2F's in N scale.
