Hi all
Just started painting again after many years but what I'll like to ask is how do you know what colour Humbrol to use on Tamyia kits ?

Humbrol has a conversion application on their website. Other places along the web have conversion charts.

Here's a recent thread regarding the iModelKit app ... might be helpful.

It really depends upon which kit and colour scheme option you're doing. Don't forget the IPMS Stockholm colour charts.
