Can anyone tell me the Humbrol Enamel alternatives for Airfix paints M11 and M27? Because the paint chart i've got says that both paints are exactly the same (in this case 25).

Thanks

Hi all, I just came across an old Airfix Whirlwind and it's from 1977. The paints are given in M numbers: M16, M21 etc. Can somebody who built a recent release of the kit please advise me on what Humbrol, Tamya of Revell colours I should use?
Thanks in advance!

Jan

^Hu 30 & 106 over 165, these are the colours in the starter kit. Normally I use Revell 68 instead of Hu 30.

As above, but HU163 vice HU30
(but Revell 68 also produces the desired result. I've yet to find a use for the present formulation of HU30!).
