FS colour matching

Recommended Posts

Hello folks, 

Does anyone know what the tamiya equivalents of FS36320, FS36118, FS36270 and FS36375.


Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

XF-24 (Sea Grey) would probably be reasonable for 36118 and XF-83 (Medium Sea Grey) for 36270, but I don't think there's anything close to the Compass grays in the rest of the range.  There are Tamiya mixes for various colours at http://www.ipmsnymburk.com/tamiya mixing/MixTamiya.pdf.

I agree with Joseph's view, those two colours may be sorted but the Compass Greys can't be found in the Tamiya catalogue. To be brutally honest, very few FS tints are IMHO really available from Tamiya. If you can find them, I'd switch to the Gunze line of paints, they are very similar to the Tamiya paints but have a wider catalogue with a large number of FS (and some BS) matched paints. The quality of these paints is actually better than Tamiya's
