    I am in the process of having resprayed, some locos into a livery similar to East Midland Livery like the Class 153 .
    Can people please provide some insight as to the appropriate paint colours from manufactures such as Humbrol, Tamiya and Vallejo ? As we are in Australia, we cannot access Phoenix or Railmatch paints.
    The colours we require would be:

    Light Green
    Yellow
    The Blue/green stripe along the bottom.

    Sol, I normally try and find the exact colour from Phoenix paints or other supplier (normally these company’s can’t send to Australia) then I use the Ulitmate colour chart to find the equivalent ( or as close as) in paint ranges that we can buy in Australia.

    search on the Phoenix site for Eastern Region gives you :-

    and the paint conversion chart :-

    Potentially a very useful resource. However it uses Adobe Flash Player, which is no longer available for download, as Adobe are no longer supporting Flash Player after 31 December 2020. Furthermore, Adobe have stated that they will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning 12 January 2021.

    Flash Player was uninstalled on my computer a few days ago following an automatic update so, as much as I would like to, I can't access the page.
