    Jul 26, 2015, 3:24 PM - ESB paint conversion chart #1

    I am about to get a cold cast helmet from Animefan's next month, can't wait! So I have been researching paint colors since the floquils are no longer a viable option and what I used last time. I have finally found multiple sites together that I think has given me names and numbers of testors and tamiya conversions from the Humbrol paints for almost all the colors. I don't have easy access to Humbrol, but can get testors and tamiya easily and quickly.
    I was getting confused in some of what I found in some of the threads. I am working on an excel spreadsheet with these- ESB helmet and armor colors for now. Has this already been done or is there interest for this to be posted up when I get it finished?

    There are quite a few different conversion charts on site. Some for humbrols, testors/MM, Tamiya, etc. The 2 I use the most are the 'paint by number' and 'mindmeister'

    Mindmeister https://www.mindmeister.com/11352535...t-paint-colors

    Yes the paint by numbers is where I started with the Humbrol paints and then cross referenced from there. I found the mindmeister a little hard to follow for just straight paint conversion from Humbrol to whatever, especially in my phone.

    Yeah I used the paint by numbers for the Humbrol numbers. I had a hard time using the mindmeister on my phone to get the testors or tamiya paints so started looking. Found this in the process. But it is only testors enamels so I kept going.
