    do any of the model paint makers have this color? if not, what is the closest match?

    I have a brass caboose and a few freight cars that need some touch-up paint.

    ...hey Alex,
    its my experience that, due to weathering, amd the actual differences in paint from varying manufacturers, you can get away with pretty well anyone's version of boxcar red, mineral red, or tuscan brown...once you've weathered the car you won't notice any color discrepencies - although such discrepencies exsist on the real thing, so that would make the cars look all that much more realistic...

    ...have fun with that airbrush...
