Does anyone have a listing of what the 1/35 Italeri PT-596 colors would be in Testors paint? Thanks, Mark

I have not found a good cross reference chart from USN colors to FS numbers. If you find one let me know. I think there are few exact matches. You would only get close with FS numbers.

I would suggest using White Ensign Models paints. They are very high quality, a perfect match, and they do a nice job of getting them to you quickly if you don't have them at your local hobby shop.

Polyscale does produce a limited number of navy paint colors in acrylic.

There are a number of paint chip charts you can buy or see on the web. Some include some cross reference but it's very limited. Snyder & Short is a good source for naval color information.

I hope that helps.
Dave

The WEM paints are very good and are available in all the color you would need. I used them for my build.
