 Post subject: RLM 02 Grau
PostPosted: Thu 14 Feb 2008 08:51 am 
Ayup All...

Having searched the forum, and IPMS Stockholm, and STILL being in a quandry... Can any of you recommend a simple Humbrol equivalent for RLM 02 for my Stuka's instrument panel, 'cos i'm not using Hu67 and being battered for it... with the True Details P.E. set in it, and it being highly visible, i'd like to have it right...

Or do i have to buy an Xtracolour tinlet too?

All help gratefully recieved thankyou in advance.... :D

In the dim and distant days when I did Luftwaffe stuff I read that instrument panels were a darker grey than the rest of the cockpit painting.

50/50 86 Light Olive and 90 Beige Green gets you close to RLM02.

RLM 02 would be correct for an early war aircraft, here's an intriguing mix  :twisted:  34 x Hu: 29 + 13 x Hu: 25 + 12 x Hu: 34 + 2 x Hu: 82(4 x Hu: 168 + 1 x Hu: 75 + 1 x Hu: 92 + 1 x Hu: 10,Hu: 92)
RLM 66 had replaced it by mid-war Hu: 92(Hu: 32)  :wink:

Ayup Ratch...

I'm building the Stuka B-2 with the snake motif. i think around 1941-2. i saw that mix on stockholm and thought stuff that.

I don't really wanna buy another tinlet (!) online and have to wait is all. This build's gone on too long as well! but i won't compromise and knacker it up....

For Luftwaffe this is a great guide

And this is not too shabby either

The simple Humbrol mix I quoted above brings you out here:

which is very similar to LifeColor RLM02.

I've read that Revell 45 is a decent match...

Ayup All...

I solved the problem yesterday at Huddersfield by buying a pot of Xtracrylic RLM02. was that cheating? Thanks for all your advice.

I have used H31. I tend to use Gunze RLM 02 or Xtracolour RLM 02.

White Ensign Models Colourcoats do a RLM02 code WEMCC ACLW12. I found this to be quite a good match.

As it seems Humbrol 92 is no longer around (Matt Iron Grey), could anyone make some alternative suggestions?
