I'm trying to find a good color for the smoke stacks on the SS Servia. It is a model that is in need of restoration and I'm not quite sure what color to paint the stacks.
Any ideas?

Cunard red is basically the same as "red lead". Though for a model it needs to be toned down a little depending on the scale, remember also that when you apply matt varnish that will darken the colour a little as well.
