I am looking for a Vallejo match (or near match) for RAL 1001 Elfenbein. Some suggest #976 Buff. I am wondering what others may think.

Thanks

DAVID,

I've been using Tamiya for a while, but since I'm converting over to Vallejo ..... I'd say either a lightened mix of German Camo Beige ..... AK Interactive just came out with a New German Interior color ... I think I might try that !!

For th simple fact that It's a Color specific for a German Interior !!

Jus My $.02

Hi,

In my experience the best method is to use white and then use filters. For example a light yellow filter will give the initial change in tone and a red brown filter gives the finnishing touch. If you start from the right elfenbein colour it is more difficult to get a nice finnish.

I forget which one - they make a bunch. But it works well and can be lightened if needed

That, and Revell Aqua Color 36314 Beige, are almost dead ringers when compared to the wartime RAL color chip:




I prefer the Revell paint only because it is semigloss out of the tub.

First, use Polly Scale U.S. Sand ANA 616 (which can be purchased at Micro Mark for $5.25 per 1 oz. bottle) as a base coat. This particular color is a good match for RAL 1002, which was only used as a primer coat underneath Elfenbein. Then, spray a single, thin coat of Vallejo 976. You'll then need to shoot some clear semigloss on top of that in order to impart the aforementioned semigloss sheen.

I bought numerous tins of the Revell enamels over 30 years ago, when I was stationed in FRG. I ordered the acrylics from Models4Sale, in the U.K., fairly recently.


I only mentioned my preference for the Revell paint because it's already SG. The Vallejo is good. It just needs an overcoat.
