Please dont use Scott purple for barrels, early Scotts had hand polished iron barrels that were finished in alazarin crimson tinted laquer, Flyer barrels were not polished at the factory and were painted, the nearest correct colour is Midland Railway Red available from model suppliers, you do not need heat proof paint for watercooled barrels. So many Scotts have been ruined by using the wrong finish on barrels. Alan Noakes
