Color: Replicate of Floquil R56 GN Big Sky Blue. Use on your Great Northern Empire Builder set. The tone of Great Northern Big Sky Blue is a lighter tone than our Conrail Blue and more representative of what some would say is a sky blue. The color also was matched to the blue used on Walther’s Great Northern Sky Blue Passenger Cars.
How to Use: Mix paint well; using a mechanical mixer is highly recommended. Using the included funnel-filter, pour the paint into your airbrush cup. Spray your project using multiple light coats. Allow sheen to disappear between coats (usually 5-10 minutes).
Clean-up: Quick and simple – use ammonia-based window cleaner. Spray onto surface areas, filters, funnels, ect. Rinse with clean water.
How to Dilute: Easily dilute paint using isopropyl alcohol 91% (rubbing alcohol). ModelersDP airbrush paint can be freely diluted without application or coverage problems. Mix directly in airbrush cup.
Weathering: Pour a little paint in the bottom of your airbrush cup, add alcoho. Dilute up to 95% alcohol to 5% paint. Color will appear once sheen has dried.
Compressor Pressure: Optimal PSI varies by airbrush, ModelersDP recommends starting with 25 psi and increasing or decreasing pressure as needed.
