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.

    TESTORS had been a dominant hobby paint producer for YEARS. This is a great app except for the glaring and unexplainable omission of the Testors lines. A truly useful app that garners global appeal will address all options.
