Colour converting tables

 

 

 

A little about paintings

 

Every manufacturer of a model is linked to a model paint manufacturer. On the directions for use, and sometimes even on the model box, you can see which painting you should use.

 

If you want to follow what says on the directions for use and the model box, you should have Tamiya colours to Tamiya models, Revell colours to Revell models, Humbrol colours to Airfix models and so on. But you donít buy all models from the same manufacturer, and you canít have all sorts of colour at home. Thatís why you can use colour converting tables, so you can converting colours from one colour manufacturer to another.

 

You can find some colours in the toy stores who are selling models. Other colours you can only get from hobby stores.

 

The colour converting tables is only from Tamiya and Revell to Humbrol. Some Humbrol colours is marked by a star, this means you must have a layer of Humbrol clear enamel to be exactly as correspondence Tamiya and Revell colour.
