RLM - Humbrol paint conversions

Post  Parabat on Mon Dec 26 2011, 22:38

Here is a comparison of Humbrol paints equivalent to RLM colours used by the Luftwaffe during WWII. I think that Humbrol 141 (RLM 02 Grau) is not made any more unfortunately.


A '~' suffix showing what I use, but still am not totally 100% happy with.

RLM02 H141 ('perfect' but now discontinued)
RLM04 H154 (H24 is too 'orange')
RLM23 H60
RLM65 H65
RLM66 H67
RLM70 H91
RLM71 H75
RLM74 H32
RLM75 H27
RLM76 H127 (add a touch of H65)
RLM76a (aka RLM84) H90
RLM78 H47/89
RLM79 H118
RLM80 H116~
RLM81 H155
RLM82 H80~
RLM83 H86~

No problems, I did a comparison against Xtracolour paints. I know how frustrating it is to try and get good RLM colours when using Humbrol. Wink
