Hey all,

I know that this topic has been covered several times, but now I want to "spray-paint" my track with an airbrush.
I remember that I read a "Profi-tips" article (by Bernd Schmid) in the Märklin Magazine, about the advantages of this method.
As I already have a sizeable amount of track handpainted with the Humbrol 113 ("rust") color, I would like to know if anybody knows of the best airbrush paint match for this colour? (brand and ref-#)

Best regards

Can't you just thin the Humbrol paint for use in your airbrush? Humbrol do supply thinner medium.

Indeed, use the paint you already have, you just need to add the right amount of airbrush thinner to thin it for airbrush purposes.
Of course assuming not mixing water based and solvent based products.

Otherwise, the airbrush paint makers like vallejo likely have a color chart that you can use to get a good match if you want to buy the premixed airbrush ready paints.
Then you get close enough and can use the airbrush to blend the transition if there is a visible difference. Remember real track isnt 100% consistent either.

https://acrylicosvallejo.com/en/downloads/ has some charts where they give you RAL, Testor, and other brand/color system equivalents to Vallejo, so if you can get your Humbrol color into what its equivalent in RAL or one of those is, you can translate it...
