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 and Vallejo paints. It also be useful as colour chart.
Now you can mark the paints you own so you can control your paint stock!!
The equivalences and color images are obtained directly from the manufacturer and there are approximated.
Roadmap for the future:
Version 3.0: Gunze

Thanks for developing this app
Needs to include Restore Model Master paints. Then I would give it 5 stars
Not a bad starting point. It would help if it notified you of no true matches. Also a key in selector would be useful.
No modeler should be without this app, every thing about model paint it knows .
Great app when shopping at your local hobby store. Suggestion is make the lists able to sort by number or by color. Another would be a checklist for heading out for your purchases. Please keep this app going! Great hobby tool! Can't wait to see this one e
Model Railroad scales need to be included, 1:87, 1:76.2, 1:43, 1:64. Could do with user specified ranges and the inclusion of imperial measurements . It would be nice to see the inclusion of Jo Sonja's paints and possibly Kaiser paints.
