Scale model building paint cross reference table

This began, long ago, as part(s) of the rec.models.scale COLOURS FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS. There are updated versions of it in other places (IPMS Stockholm's web site) for example, and I know it was handed out in paper form in for example Italy in the early 90s -- all with my express permission: No copyright claimed. Parts of it are probably still useful, but some may have been superceded by more recent research. (Not the cross reference itself, but which prototype colours they match.)

Subject: COLOURS FAQ, 01/20: Introduction

The rec.models.scale is posted in three parts every two months.


This FAQ deals with the problem of which colours to use. Maybe you know
the prototype colours, but don't know what model colours to use; Perhaps
you have an instruction manual that lists model colours of a brand you
don't use, what are the equivalents; Sometimes you wonder about a colour
you don't have any references to: In these cases this list is for you.

Its emphasis is on military aviation colours.

I am a relativist: The most important thing is that the colours go well
_together_ on a model; and if it _looks_ right, I think it is! Generally,
I think you should use slightly lighter colours on a model.

GS:Hnnn = Gunze Sanyo acrylics; T:X/XF-nn = Tamiya acrylics;
X:Xnnn = Xtracolor; P:nnnnnn = Polly S; Hu:nnn = Humbrol;
T/MM:nnnn = Testors/Model Master; Pr:Mnnn = Precision Paints
Note: Gloss/matt often substitute for each other.
99*x+00*y = Mix x parts 99 + y parts 00 (approximately)

My primary sources have been different paint manufacturers own
data, magazines (Scale Models, FineScale Modeller, Military
InScale), books, David H. Klaus' "The IPMS Color
Cross-Reference Guide" and postings on Usenet.

These are the sections, those marked with "*" are changed since
last time.

Subject: COLOURS FAQ, 02/20: FS 595 to model colours

Fedral Standard 595a/595B -> Gunze Sanyo, Humbrol, Tamiya, Xtracolor, Polly S

  The colours has no official names, just numbers.
  1:st figure: 1 = gloss, 2 = semigloss, 3 = lusterless
  2:nd figure: General color classification group
  3:rd - 5:th  figure: Lower = darker; higher = lighter, _with no other
  significance_. (Assigned with gaps to allow addition of new colours.)
  FS.595 is a colour collection, not a system, so the existence of a 3xxxx
  doesn't imply that there is a 1xxxx.
