Tamiya Paints Matches ?

Post by Distanthammer » Fri Nov 27, 2020 3:45 pm


In the Tamiya range, which color is similar to:

- Verde Mimetico 1
- Giallo Mimetico 3
- Grigio Mimetico

No "perfect" match needed

Welcome to Stormo. I like Tamiya paints however their range of paints have always been limited.

Verde Mimetico 1 - FS.34258 - no exact match - Stefano Lazzaro's VITO Charts suggest FS.34151 - Modelmaster Acryl Testors # TES4736
Giallo Mimetico 3 - FS.33434 - no exact match
Grigio Mimetico - FS.34258 - XF-54 (add a little white)

You can also try making your own mixes using the color guides on this site:

What I have for Tamiya mixes:

Italian Aircraft WWII
Interior Green – XF71
Underside Grey – XF66:1 + XF2:2
Tan – XF59
Olive Green – XF67
Brown – XF64
Dark Green – XF27

Not really mixes, but it's all I have.
