Newbi question, Tamiya match to Humbrol 90
Posted by Sackgasse on Monday, April 29, 2019 10:24 AM

Hi,
About to start a new project building a Hawker Hurricane Mk.1b.
Have a bit of an issue with the lower wing colour (underwing).
My references sway from a very mild gray green to grey.

The instructin call for Humbrol 90 Matt Beige Green.

Is this correct and if so is Tamiya XF-21 Sky a good match?

Hi BlackSheepTwoOneFour,

Than you for the link.

The online chart loaded after I followed the instructions to allow Flash pop-ups but unfortunatelly I can not get the PDF download to work.

Anyway, thank you for your time and effort!

I couldn't get the page to load either. Looks like a great reference site, so bookmarking in hopes that developers clear up bugs!
