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.

    Not just a color converter, I'm using it as a mobile color catalogue to choose the right color before buying it.

    Would it be possible to add a feature to keep track the ones to be bought ?

    Use it all the time, it would be even better if you could opt for inches or mms; the Vallejo Game Color list would be a nice addition.
