Ready for paint, but what colour?

Ready for paint

All the parts are fitted, apart from some copper wire inside the cab, so the model is ready for a quick scrub in the sink to remove any mould release and grease from my fingers. After this, there will be a shot of car primer and then paint.

But what colour?

The illustrations I have found don't help as they are black and white line drawings.

Personally, I fancy a green body, black footplate and deep, red bufferbeams. A bit of brass for the whistle, dome, spectacle plates etc. and then perhaps some weathering. The photo on this Gn15 forum is irresistible...
