Notice of Update ~ RLM 02 & RLM 63 Graus
Updated the analysis of RLM 02 colour with a comparison of the Kiroff sample to measured samples of three well known RLM 02 hobby paints and to measured samples of RLM 63.
Kiroff sample RLM 02: 7.3 Y 5.0/1.2
Testors RLM 02: 8.1 Y 5.3/0.9
GSI Creos RLM 02: 7.8 Y 5.3/0.8
LifeColor RLM 02: 7.8 Y 5.2/1.5
Kiroff RLM 63: 2.8 GY 5.0/1.1
Merrick RLM 63: 6.0 GY 4.7/0.9
Monogram RLM 02: 7.6 Y 5.0/1.2
There seems to be a misperception about the appearance of RLM 63 in some discussions whereby it is presumed to be a light, neutral grey. It is rather a cool grey-green and is similar to the cool grey-green of several hobby paints which purport to be RLM 02!

As with your notations for RLM 02 above: do you have a candidate best pre-mixed hobby paint match to RLM 63?
