    I'm looking for a little help. I've been looking at various colour conversion charts all accross the web and I've downloaded the one from one of the stickies on this site. However, here's the good bit. Seeing as I'm colour blind (honest), the Tamiya colours described in the manual for my Mossy when converted to Humbrol enamels don't appear to be right. I'm aiming for the FB MkVI 487 Squadron colours.

    Can anyone offer advice on Humbrol colour matches for the following Tamiya colours AS-9, AS-10 and AS-11.

    I have to laugh because for me it doesn't make really that much difference because of the colour blindness, its for my boys I do it (well maybe a little bit for me, being honest it's mostly for me but don't tell my wife!!)

    Cheers and thanks in advance for any support.
