Hi there, can anyone tell me what shade of green the Bachmann 108 DMU is painted, and hence, what paint colour does this require from Humbrol etc?

Many thanks for your help. I am converting an old coach into a centre car!

Useful question, as sooner or later, I will probably need tha same paint to touch up my Bachmann Cravens (class 105) units. May I cheekily include the Railmatch range (rattle can or paint) for consideration?

Please give your verdict once in your hands, and applied to the model. It's the old story, will the Railmatch paint match what Bachmann have applied to their model? (I am not opposed to a slight mismatch, of a patch repaint looking slightly richer than the older paint that's been some time on the vehicle. After all, that's how a great many of BR's vehicles could be seen in service, such as what was clearly a newly painted door in a slightly duller coach side.)
