I've seen some guides for mixing up RLM colors. Any suggestions out there for out of the bottle colors, or suggestions on how to modify the mixes.

I'm painting for winter/spring of 44.

I had seen those, but they are for air brushing. At 1/600th I'm paint brushing them. From what I read these are too thin for paint brushing.

I wish they made a brush version

I've used those on 1/300 aircraft with no issues. I use a light primer coat, don't try over black.

Tell me which RLM colours you want and I'll give you the VJ codes for them if they do them in the model colour range.
