I recently picked up this fantastic kit,but when i opened it i discovered the kit gave the paint codes(h340 eg.)   ,but no colors listed.Is there any one out there who can help me out? 

the codes are h2,h3,h8,h9,h10,h13,h18,h27,h28,h33,h43,h61,h78,h304,h316,h327and h340.

Those are Gunze acrylic paint codes. Get thee to Google for a Gunze paint chart and all will be answered.

Be sure to note that H = acrylic and C = solvent-based acrylic (or commonly just shorthanded as lacquer). Most of the time the color codes overlap, but not always.
