Hi Tom,
That is really useful, thanks.
It rather indicates what a mix of colours might have been in evidence from 1939 to the 1950s.

HO Scale - Märklin (ep III and VI, C Track, digital) - 2 rail (USA and Australia) - 3 rail (English Hornby Dublo) - a few old O gauge.

Very helpful! Also topically relevant for me at the moment. I'm doing some painting in TEE colors shortly, and I'm finding the RAL colors do not at all match Marklin's...

I have a bottle of RAL 1001, which is supposed to be TEE beige. But across ~10 Marklin, HAG and Roco TEE pieces I have it isn't even close enough to touch any of them up. Its not bad either, but not close to any models across a few manufacturers

My bottle of RAL 3004 was not even close- completely off.

Just a note for anyone comparing prototype to models! I'm painting a whole set, so I can simply find a closer red and go to work, but for touchup be careful...

Yeah I bought some Humbrol RAL3000 to paint a wheelset to match Marklins red.

It was not a perfect match but suitably close enough. I thought maybe the black original may have affected the colour but the Humbrol paint is a gloss enamel so I wouldn't think an enamel would be affected.

Found this colour reference chart on the suter-meggen web site, may be of use for cross referencing of brands/RAL colours etc

A good comparison chart , BUT when I open the link with Acrobat it is very distorted , the paint examples are ok .it is just the words that are unreadable . Any hints to how to rectify this problem ? On another forum someone else has the same problem .

It works okay for me in both I/Explorer and Chrome browsers.

Maybe copy the link and past into a new window. Right clicking on it and opening in new window also works for me.

Cheers

Hi Brett It was just a case of using the enlarger on the paint chart , for one of lifes mysteries it then became readable .

Thanks for the thought .
