    Boy....! This is doing my head in...:oops: :lol:
    Now, I've been trying to go through the Vallejo paints to order them from Modelhobbies, which Terry so kindly recommended earlier, which is easier said than done....:lol:
    Anyhoo, after doing my best, to try to get the colours to match the Tamiya chart, I'm a few short that I'm not too sure about....

    RAF/Dark Green
    RAF/Ocean Grey
    Field Blue
    Desert Yellow
    Metallic Grey

    So, any help is as always, very much appreciated....8) :D

    Great! At last you'll get your paints sorted. I presume 'my' model shop didn't have the Tamiya ones after all?

    Not all of them. Some they don't sell within EU because what they're made of. But, they do have plenty of Vallejo....we're still talking about modelhobbies.co.uk, right? :lol:

    No, Lucky. The other one, the model shop just down the road from where I live in Macclesfield. They have the full range, less a couple of colours that are 'out' worldwide, I believe metallics. They can do mail order, or, tell me what you want and I'll get em and send em up to you. If you want to order direct, the tel. number is:- 01625 511646. Web = cheshiremods.org.uk
    The owner is Iris.

    Oh...ok, thanks Terry! The plan was to build the Mosquito and the Beaufighter at the same time, but that would take the whole defence budget to get the paints :( :lol: ... So I think that I'll kick off with my Mosquito B Mk.IV first and start on the on the Beaufighter halfway through or something like that...:lol:

    Know what you mean Jan. If you need any help from my end to get the paints, just give me a shout. BTW, just had a reply from my ex- Mossie Beaufighter pilot friend in the 'States. Will be posting the story he sent me, with a couple of pics I did of his aircraft, hopefully later today, under 'STORIES'.
    Cheers, Terry.

    These Vallejo paints are really nice.Although I haven't used them so far but heart many good opinions.For airbrushes the Air series is dedicated.These are ready to use.Certainly some additional colours are needed for wash or drybrushing for instance.That's a pit these are quite expensive here in Poland.

    That's some useful colour charts you found there, Jan. I'll have to print-out copies to keep on file. Even though i know most of them, it's amazing how you can forget at a critical moment!
