A-10 3 Color Scheme in Testors Paints?
Posted by RonUSMC on Thursday, June 19, 2003 11:08 PM
I am doing the Tamiya kit and it has the XF numbers, but does anyone know the FS numbers or to make it easy on me.. the Testors Model Masters numbers for them?

The Tamiya numbers are:

XF-4
XF-26
XF-51

XF-4 = FS: 34259
XF-26 = FS: 34128
XF-51 doesn't have an FS equivilant, but its Humbrol 108, which is an enamel. (Some charts put FS: 34087 olive drab as the equivilant to the humbrol, but I don't know for sure.)

For future reference, check out these sites:

Those are nice, thank you for that.

Looks like I am going to have to buy some Tamiya Paints.

Here's a decent general reference site for FS colors:
