Basics Cleaner Thinner Varnish. The product is already in the wishlist! KG3 was more 'to scale'? Another build here, this time using the Tamiya formula from Starmer - just gives a better idea of the colour:.
Same here, I would trust Mike's research over any of the other bottled paints. I often read that many of those brands that have risen from the 'artistic school' tend to be more concerned with aesthetics than accuracy. His only comment to be found concerned the Cauter paints, wherein his sample appeared way off.
Have a look at Humbrol , which is a khaki green. I see they do an Emerald Green Gloss , no. So have I mixed the wrong Revell paints, or have they changed their paints' names and numbers jiust to add to my confusion? I used a revell conversion chart with these names but checking the enamel site http: Thanks for the clarification David, much appreciated.
I'm going to try both the Revell and Vallejo mixes - the Vallejo one posted by Jack seems to allow for scale effect, so it will be interesting to see the two mixes together!
I've some some Photoshop jiggery-pokery to adjust my colours slightly to the colour swatch jpeg, but hopefully this shows the variation in the lightness and darkness of the 2 mixes and the MIG paint. From actual surviving paint I have seen G3 is a brownish green. In my opinion some modelers make it too brown.
Not easy but the only way yet. This is matched to two original equipment samples and a replicated sample. The new basic colour until replaced in by S. Used with G4 and less often with G5 or occasionally on its own. This is a dark rich brown looking yellow—green. Higher contrast with G5 and much less so with Dark Green G4.
I can see from your photo that this mix is quiet green but according to Mike Starmer the mix is right when compared to an original. All I can say is good luck and go with what you think is best. The best way to describe it is that it looks green next to something brown, but brown next to something green - a bit nowt nor summat really.
For what it's worth, I went out and purchased the Mig G3 and I'm very happy with it, painted it on a piece of paper and the shade is darker than what you posted and looks identical to the samples I have of actual G3. I also may lighten it a bit for scale. I would have hoped Mig did a G4 for the disruptive. Well, after a bit of experimentation, here is my take on DG3. You cannot mix KG3 using Vallejo 'equivalents' to Revell colours.
There are simply equivalents, not matches. Different ratio of pigments are used in both companies colours, even small changes can make a noticeable difference to the final colour. Since I originally formulated the swatch in my book, I discovered that Humbrol have changed the formuli for H olive dab and H10 brown. I used new tins bought in I did some tests and found that 5 x H and 1 x H10 will give a very close match to my helmet colour.
The result is a satin but no more than the original Revell mix, so matt varnish overall when dry. The AK sample I have was too light, it needed brown and green. Basically a long way off the original. I am aware that the first batch of colours under White Ensign Models had a few colours that were off. The records we have show that some were updated a number of years back, which I understand to be in response to comments by yourself? Not sure what you mean, as I haven't used Vallejo 'equivalents' to Revell colours: You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.
