    Is the difference in blues used between both versions of the phase 5 scheme? I have 3 P42DC in the early phase V scheme and want to update them. In this photo by Daniel Stinson I don't see a difference. But in Kato N-scale there is any help would be great. Also what silver should match Katos silver?[​IMG]

    Nick,

    I can't find the perfect match to Kato's silver (Testors spray can Stainless Steel comes close), but the blues in Phase Va and Vb are in fact the same on the prototype. Kato adjusted their color to a more correct shade recently when they started doing Vb.
