    Does anyone know what kind of paint to use on the green and silver or light grey FURX units that matches those colors????


    Thanks,
    Scott

    For the silver, as far as I can tell, a bright silver like WP silver would work best. However, I've been informed that there are few truly silver units left, most are now gray.

    If you want true to color First Union green, you can turn to our NASCAR modeling brethren (and sistren)... www.racinghobbies.com sells First Union Green paint, $5.50 a pop (not sure if it's bottle or spray can). Having seen the race car in person, I'm fairly certain it's the same green.
