Vallejo 'model Air' versus 'model color'

Recommended Posts

Vallejo make model air for airbrushing with finer pigments and their model color for brushpainting. Both seem to have about 200 colours in their respective ranges.

HOWEVER, when comparing a colour in one range to the supposed same in the other range they appear NOT to be the same. Well, at least Vellejo's own equivalent chart says things like RLM70 model color is similar to Tamiya's XF69 (Black) but the RLM70 model air equals Tamiya XF17 (sea Blue)!!! AND RLM80 model color is XF67 (Green) but the model air version is XF65 (field Grey)!!

ANYONE, got any opinions or thoughts on this?

Thanks Scott.

However, I am trying to find out if the colours are the same across their range. Ie RLM70 in Model Air is the same as RLM70 in Model Color?

I don't want to buy a bottle of each to test out.
