224 Peter Posted November 30, 2022 Share Posted November 30, 2022 On the subject of German paints, as the war progressed the supply of paint pigments became a problem with the result that whilst specific paints, such as RLM 02, became somewhat variable in colour. Further, pigment density was reduced, so undersurface colours ghosted through. The evolution of German RLM paint codes and their association with the RAL codes is described here: https://emmasplanes.com/index.php/paints/rlm-colors/ As can be seen from the earliest paint swatches RLM 02, Grey, has a definite green tinge, which is why it was known as "grey green" for many years. There is a cross reference list showing RLM, RAL, FS and many of the main model colours, but not Humbrol. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
