Vallejo Conversions for Tamiya & Humbrol
by: Martin Oliver

VALLEJO CONVERSION CHART

On a recent visit to an art shop I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a conversion chart for Vallejo paints. I know it would come in very handy for others out there so I am typing it out for you, as unfortunately my scanner does not seem to be able to read the chart!

In order to save time a colour chart can be found on Vallejo's web site which is http://www.acrylicosvallejo.com there is also a conversion chart for federal standards, RAL, RLM and film colour.

Below I will list the conversions for Tamiya and Humbrol. This list is copied from a guide published by Vallejo, so I will take neither credit for it or criticism for any wrong conversions. Hopefully it will be of as much use to you as it will be for me.
