This is quite possibly going to sound a bit stupid, but I'll ask anyway.
I'm scanning the instructions for my 1/48 Tamiya Beaufighter prior to beginning the build, and the 'paint this colour here' markers are given as so:
XF-5:1 +XF-21:3 +XF-65:1
It may as well be in Dutch for all I understand it. Is it a mixing guide - 1 part XF65, 1 part XF5, 3 parts XF21? I have a feeling that the answer is one of those 'obvious when you know it' things. Thanks for your help.
Matt

You have surmised it correctly, it's proportions of paint to be mixed.
