found a rust-proof zinc-based, and made ​​produce color as the originals.
Unfortunately you can see the brush strokes, but the danger of rust is removed, and even scratching the paint.

I'd get it re enamelled by Jacksons or Argos, in the Original livery, my favourite RM colour scheme, a classic. ! It's a beaut!
