Does that make the Kabota a K-9 unit?

I'm afraid that I started this by my reference to The Hound of the Baskervilles, but we're getting perilously close to being transferred to the Whimsical Weirdness and Foolery thread. My apologies.

Thanks for both the information and entertainment. Who said Maine men didn't have a sense of humor? What I have found out in this project is that:  1. I should have made it bigger somehow and, 2. Trying to rout tongue and groove boards is really tough when you are not set up for keeping long boards perfectly flat. I don't think I'll ever get the dust I created out of my garage.

This may not be the best place to ask - but....
I am going to paint some large scale passenger cars,
Hunter Green seems to approximate the sides but what red is the roof color?
I think it may have been asked before but my memory is not that long-
Its but the hard drive was full that day or it leaked on the pillow soon after.

Carl....for large scale cars I would suggest Krylon Red Oxide primer as a much closer match than the Cottage Red, which I find to be much too red. The coach roofs were painted with red lead or red oxide paints that were closer to a brown color.
Another advantage of the Krylon Red Oxide is it is available in spray cans.

Will check that again - I thought it a leettle too brown. Others too red.
Like the song says - I'll keep on searching. ;D

Just started

Might look at Toro Red with weathering.
or Oliver Red that is not too garish.

Carl....look at box car red too. True red oxide is closer to the brown side of things than the red side.

Keith - Was thinking that as I watched "Trains & Locomotives" or "Brick Red" but that is like saying "Flesh"
