Colour charts

Those colours you can see in the tables below where in use, or are still in use by the Swedish Air Force. You can see this as a add-on to the book “Kronmärkt” that describes markings and paint used on aircrafts, by Leif Hellstöm and Leif Fredin. In my work with this table I “translated” the FS 595B numbers to colours with Paint Shop Pro and added this to the existing table.
Unfortunately can a computer screen never show exact hue and saturation on the colour and could never replace a painted colour chips. Even the best colour printers can’t compete with painted colour chips. If you want a more accurate compare you have to use colour chips like FS 595B.

Early colours

Those early Colors used on Aircrafts was from several paint manufactures. Mostly from UK like Cellon and Titane. In spite that several planes was in camouflage during 1920:s the author of the book had severe difficulties to find even a smallest fragment of paint. Colors used on Phönix Dronten is a second hand information based on an old model that was matched to Humbrol in the seventies.
