Online realtime paint lookup is here

Many modellers have their favorite ranges of paint they like to use on their models but seldom do the kit makers include those references implicitly. Now you can, in real-time, see direct comparisons* between over 25 different standards and ranges.

For example, Airfix kit instructions use Humbrol references for painting information but you want to use Testors Model Master on your kit. No problem, simply click to select Humbrol and Testors and you're done. Want it sorted by Testors color number - simply click on the heading and its done.

Built-in color swatch: Many colors have RGB approximations available, click on the row to see a color swatch where available.

Movable columns: Prefer to have the paint name column before the number column - simply drag the columns where you want them. It really is that easy.
