Testors to Tamiya paint conversion table
Posted by Mini-Tiger on Wednesday, April 11, 2007 5:21 PM

Hi all,

As per the subject title, has anyone got or found such a table...

Would they mind posting a link to it please.....

As I live in the UK, finding Testors paints over here is like finding "Rocking Horse Droppings"

So I need to convert the following.......

FS:30219 Dark Tan

FS:34079 Dark Green

FS:34102 Medium Green..............From Testors to Tamiya.....

I look forward to your replys

I paid a visit to IPMS Stockholm's website.  They have the best color chart available.  I've been trying to match some Humbol colors to Testors and it's the most complete.  

FS:30219 Dark Tan is XF52

FS:34079 Dark Green is XF27

FS:34102 Medium Green- not finding a direct equivalent in Tamiya. It's a match for Humbol *117* if that helps.

(Paul is right. 116 was the dark green.  I read my notes wrong.)

Here's another good data base for paint conversions:

FS34102 I believe is Humbrol 117. The IPMS site is pretty amazing!

OK, but if we don't care about Humbrol, is there a Tamiya to Testors conversion table somewhere?  Something that is not Humbrol based, where XF4 & 58 aren't even shown (among others).

Two of the better paint conversion tools out there are; (which has both Testors & Tamiya)

& (which doesn't have Testors, but is still pretty useful)
