I'm a long time armor modeler. My son got me a Hasegawa 1/48 scale TF-104G for Christmas (apparently it looked "more cool" than the M4A2 I asked for) . I need a little help with the paint scheme for post war German jets. I know that the underside is RAL 9006, and the upper wings and fuselage are RAL 6014 and 7012. I have a huge collection of Tamiya paints and I would like use them.
I am looking for suggestions for best matches and/or custom mixes for Tamiya paints.
Thanks,
Cob

Hi Rob

In General the site of Jens Popp aka Don Color is almost invaluabel for camo schemes:

Don Color

he has also a wide range of acrylic colours in his programme. But as you are just looking for the cross reference I would also recomment the IPMS Stockholm site. BTW thats "Norm 72"



cheers

Thanks guys,
I looked at IPMS Stockholm and 916 Starfighter which had a copy of the Don color chart. The paint reference chart at IPMS Stockholm has no match for the Norm 72 RAL colors to Tamiya paints. I was hoping someone who builds post -war Luftwaffe planes has their own custom Tamiya mix that matches the Don color chart. If not, I'll use it and my MK I Mod 0 eyeball to mix my own.
By the way I'm really enjoying the build. I might have to get another plane after this and put some of my armor projects on hold a little longer. Thanks again,
Rob
