Hi all,
I have finished a update to my charts and they now have 10 major hobby makers andd what they claim as being their matched to the Luftwaffe RLM colours.
Please download the charts from my website at:
or direct:

Also, there is the updated excel spreadsheet that I compiled and now has 16 sources of suggestions for matched to RAF/FAA, French, Italian, RLM and some USA WW2 colour mixes. It is the first dot point in the links section above.

How these help with your colour matching and mixing.

These sheets have been updated with the addition of some Mr.Hobby (Gunze) colours. I just have to get the time and money to buy the rest and add them!
See my website for the latest version here:

Hi all,

Here is a updated RLM hobby paint comparison chart.
I have made the background in each row the same colour as the RLM paint chip (from the centre column) to hopefully show the difference better between the hobby colour and the RLM colour.
I will add the NEW Humbrol enamel paints when they become available in Australia as well.
