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.

    Now you have added more colour and you can create a list of all the paint you have. Also make a list of the paint you require.

    Although I've never heard of most of these brands, it does not include the small regular 1/4 oz. bottles of Testors Enamel. 5 Stars otherwise. Very useful.

    I just purchased this and I appreciate the efforts by the developer so far. I've tried several other similar apps but this one is the smoothest and most intuitive one by far. I especially like how easy it is to add colors to both your inventory and wish list. I also like that it shows equivalent paints for each color. Some of the suggested matches don't always seem accurate, though. I would love
