Humbrol #34 is "flat white". Not surprisingly, Humbrol itself lists the
equivalent Tamiya XF2 (guess what) "flat white" in its paint range (the one
with the actual paint chips).
Is this a joke, or am I missing something ?
What I'm looking for is a chart that links the various paints (Model Master,
Humbrol, etc) to the FS numbers (or vice versa)- like Dave Klaus (I think)
did many years ago. I'm forever trying to figure out what paint to use to
match some FS number that's not the usual FS 16440.
Try surfing around Urban Frdriksson's site:
Not complete, and mostly Humbrol oriented, but handy.
And here's another one - again a bit Humbrol slanted:
Yes - Dave Klaus did the "IPMS Color Cross-Reference". One of the
handiest references I own. If you can find a copy, grab it.
And to follow up...I just did a search on the Meteor Productions site -
they list the Klaus "IPMS Color Guide" and FS 595 (presumably a Fan
Deck) combination as being available for $58.95, stock # GFS595.
But I thought the book was out of print...
