    Hi,
    one option you have is to download the "equivalecias" bulletin from the Vallejo website: it includes both Revell and Model Masters
    vallejo: downloads
    Hope it will be of some help.
    Cheers
    Alberto

    Hellgrau 50 (RAL 7001) a light gray that was used on the superstructures of surface vessels. Similar to Model Master Neutral Gray.

    Dunkelgrau 51 (RAL 7000) a medium blue-gray that was used on the superstructures of surface vessels. Similar to Model Master Medium Gray.
