    Use Floquil (solvent based, easy clean although lots of fumes) or Polly Scale (acrylic, water soluable, harder to clean, but little if any fumes).

    they are the most commonly available.

    Scalecoat is bad for you plastic kits without a primer on it. Scalecoat II is more apporpriate. makesure your paint doesn't eat plastic.

    For buildings, unless you need a prototype railroad color, you can get the acrylic craft paints from Micheals, Tall Mouse, or other craft store for much less than you will pay for model paints at the hobby shop.
