Find equivalences between colors of different paint brands used in model kits
Although I know it's loads of fun to raid the paint strip section at Home Depot (the colors! the colors!), one major issue is managing to sort through them all to find equivalencies between the brands. If you use plenty of paint, you'll want a tool to help you compare shades beyond simply "periwinkle" - 27Pulgadas Androidesign's Hobby Color Converter takes the guesswork out of this task.
Select a brand of paint - the app includes Tamiya, Revell, Humbrol and Vallejo. From there, browse the color selection, either by scrolling through them manually or entering a search term. Tap any color to see the equivalencies across all other brands.
You can feel confident about the equivalences since the information is obtained directly from the manufacturers themselves.
The app includes a rudimentary metric-imperial converter as well.
27Pulgadas Androidesign's Hobby Color Converter is the ideal tool for this niche paint job.
This application helps you to find equivalences between colours of different brand paints used in model kits. In this version you can find equivalences between Tamiya, Revell, Humbrol, Vallejo and Gunze Sangyo paints. It also be useful as colour chart.

But then you added a huge 'give us money' button.
Would be helpful if it had a wish list/need tick as well as the stock tick
This app is a must have for any scale model builder or hobbiest.
Thanks for developing this app
Needs to include Restore Model Master paints. Then I would give it 5 stars
