TOPIC: Paint Conversion Tool

Paint Conversion Tool 13 Jul 2014 08:52 #1

I just stumbled on this trying to find what color to use for the green on the IL2. Really neat tool here.

scalemodeldb.com/paint

What you do is click the Color Search option.
Find a picture on the internet of the item you're looking to match. Right click on the image and copy the image URL. Or you can upload the image to them!

Once you have the image on their website, click the color you're looking to match and it will be picked on the color selector to the left. Then click Show Matching Paint. Below you'll see a list of matches. You can even filter out brands, types and sheens.

Pretty dang cool you ask me!! :good

If this has been posted before let me know, I must have missed it.
I told you photobucket sucks...

I think it was IronMike that showed me that site a couple years ago, and I've used it a few times, and its been very useful.

That'll come in handy, Thanks MP!

I use iModelkit on my IOS7 devices. It's pretty helpful in paint mixing ratios and conversions, but I use all the time as a scale calc. It's free with ads or $7 for the full version. I use it so much, I forked over the cash.

Now if there was only a hobby shop I could drive to and pick up said paint it would be great :blink:

Hey Dave, tell me more about the paint mixing ratio thing ? Is that something available to everyone ?

Cheers, Christian B)

Thanks for posting. I am sure it will come in handy for me. There was another paint conversion site (can't remember the name) which wasn't to bad either but it quick loading after a few visits. I am bookmarking this one.

That was probably this one Joe
www.paint4models.com/
It's got really great cross reference for all the major brands but it doesn't have the tool where you can upload or link a paint chip and have it come up with a match. I sometimes have trouble with the Java loading right also.
I told you photobucket sucks...
