A recent thread about Hornby BR green paint has prompted this thread.

Sitting in a box I have R074 41 Squadron spamcan BR early crest. The BR green it's painted is very dark. Does anyone else have the same model and is theirs the same?

Hi Mal

I have the same loco as it was the first tender loco I got.Mine has quite dark paintwork and it's quite glossy as well.
I've changed the motor in mine for a 5 pole X03 as it used to sound like a Ford Transit as it made it's way around the layout.
I'm also surprised at the amont of money they fetch on feebay when they come up because as models go, they're not that great. I'l never sell mine though.

That's the one, Andii, dark and glossy. And noisy, too. I guess it fetches money because not too many were made.
