Hi Tom,
Back to your original question about Blood and Custard. We are in the process of building a rake of BR Mk1s for a customer who wants them in Blood and Custard. We always have our paints matched at our Cmax automotive paint store. They will mix paints for you and put into spray cans. We have just had the paint analysed by a spectrophotometer and the matches are Fiat Colour Rosso Antonelli and Volkswagen Mellow Yellow. These colours were fairly short lived in BR days because the cream stained and the blood colour faded quickly.

Hope this helps.

Tom,
You should go to any company that mixes auto paint for car enthusiasts. Thats where the kids get those awful colours you would not be seen dead in. Check your yellow pages. Yes it is an Italian colour but being from Fiat it is probably good at hiding the rust spots. We painted the rake of 10 British Rail Mk 1 coaches today and they look very sharp. We will post a picture once they are complete. If I can help more please let me know.
Cheers
