Alclad Colours Equivalent...

Recommended Posts


Happy new year to everyone!


Can I inquire for Alclad ALC-104(Pale burnt metal)

                             Alclad ALC-113(Jet Exhaust)

                             Alclad ALC-413(Hotmetal Blue)

What are these paints equivalent to Tamiya paints, Gunze & Mr Color?

The IPMS Conversion chart doesnt include Alclad brand.


Thanks everyone!

I'm not sure there are equivalents in those paint brands for these colors. Mr Color does have some brushable and burnishable metallics for a variety of metals.


MRP (Mister Paint) does have an apparently wide set of metallics like Alclad. AMMO by mig Jimenez appears to have some of the colors.

Honestly, my experience is that the AK Xtreme Metal colors are great options.  They have Burnt Metal (AK484), Jet Exhaust (AK486), but they don't have a 'blue' equivalent, unfortunately,   However, my experience with MRP Paints has been equally fabulous, and they DO have a blue cast color, MRP-155, Burnt Metal Blue.  I'd use those, really.


While I am a huge fan of Gunze (Mr. Color, Mr. Metal Color, and Mr. Color Super Metallic), all of which I have, they don't have the specifics colors you are looking for.
