Yes, the Daylight Baggage is a 60-B-8 and the Pullman Green is a 60-B-9/10. These are painted with Star Brands paint and Clear Pollycarbonate (Lexan) for the windows.

Thanks guys. The 60-B-8 was not painted (undecided) but the B-9/10 was painted in Daylight. I had to repaint it because Espee did not have a B-9/10 painted in Daylight. The B-8 (6029)  was the only daylight in that series.

What did you use for primer? I assume these are Precision Scale brass?

Yes, these are PSC cars. I do not use primer.

I usually use Scalecoat paint, it's own primer, sometime I'll put a coat of MOW grey on first but only when I use Tru-color paint.

Interesting. On brass, I always use Scalecoat MOW grey or NYC light grey, the apply Allclad 2 primer before applying Tru-color paint. I have had issues with Tru-color paint blistering when applied directly to Scalecoat paint, even after fully drying either in an oven or allowing to set for several weeks. The Allclad primer works perfect and have never had a problem with blistering or peeling of the Tru-color paint. 
I like Tru-Color paint, and spray only after thinning about 20% with Tru-color thinner. 
You did a beautiful job on these cars. Well done.

Nice job on both cars. For primer, I switched from Scalecoat to Tamiya Surface Primer as it' goes on thinner and smoother and covers in one pass. For yellow, red and orange shades, I use Tamiya White surface primer as the colors "Pop"

I may try the Tamiya when I run out of the MOW Scalwecoat. I use the Scalecoat II for a "barrier" when using Scalecoat I on plastic.
It will be a while, I have lots of the MOW paint. Thanks for the tip. Sometimes I will use Scalecoat Daylight orange/red for a base of Tru-Color Daylight Orange/red.
I don't use much Tru-Color so all this is not much of an issue. I use Star Brands paint for the higher end paintjobs because that's (in my opinion) the best paint, and it's what my clients want.
