One of my CoC colleagues posted this, and it's so juicy I thought I should post it here for those doing skins.

3j2m7,

Happy to help, and I have some nagging thought that someone else went so far as to figure out what the exact Pantone numbers were for the various RAL numbers. These are printing industry standard designations. Something I can't resolve in this OP, though, is how you hold a true color standard given how much color variation you'll see on different model TV sets.

Regards,

John Kettler

Hi John

We had this conversation already a few years ago: Due to technical reasons almost anything goes, as far as colours are concerned.

An example: In the „Saumur PzIV“ thread, Sgt Squarehead confirmed that German tanks were delivered with a few cans of paint, to be applied with site means. Needless to say, the colour comes out quite differently, if you dilute with clean water or dirty water or petroleum or something else. Or if you paint with a brush instead of spray. Or if the base metal is properly prepared or not...

BTW, that is, why the Saumur Pz IV comes out so nice and bright.
