QUOTE (jim s-w @ 13 Jan 2009, 17:13) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Colour needs to be lighter as it gets smaller. If you were to take a can of rail blue as used by BR and paint a 4mm scale model loco with it, despite it being the exact colour the model would appear almost black by comparrison.

That's also why any model painted in high gloss looks "toylike", and why I prefer satin finishes which tend to absorb rather than reflect light.
