Hi folks,

here in Germany we have difficulties to get Gunze colors. Is Tamiya X-23 a good replacement for the Gunze Color ?

Certainly not. X-23 is clear blue whereas RLM76 is a kind of blue grey.
If you want to use Tamiya colors, you should mix basic light grey with maybe 10-15 % of blue. Otherwise try Internet (ebay, etc.) for Gunze colors.

Cheers

It may be easier to obtain in Germany. Should be able to get it from Hannants if all else fails.

It looks too blue in my opinion. This 262 is finished in Xtracolor RLM 76 - judge for yourself.
