Default Paint advice

I haven't picked up an airbrush in 20 years and just bought a new set up today and supplies for the Revell 1/32 BF109 g10 Erla. Was thinking of picking up the Barricuda after market set for this.

I'm hoping you guys can give me here is some paint advice. I was eyeing the Vallejo air RLM set fot this kit since it's an all in one like 15 paints for under $50 or should I go with Tamiya? I've been out of the game so I see they have changed their names. Any good links to which xf/x paints required for this kit would be greatly appreciated. I've googled paint list for this kit but haven't found a cross reference to Tamiya paints etc. really appreciate all inputs and links

- Steve


P.S I just picked up a simple Paasche H single action till I get my feet wet again and will eventually pick up a double action Iwata



Crap!!! I realized I have this in the wrong section..

Greetings Trooper:

Both paints are excellent. They can be thinned with water or alcohol which means easy clean up. I like to cut my acrylics about 50/50.

Vallejo offers a wide range of military colors, both for armor and aircraft.

You will probably find the Tamiya color your looking for - just named something odd. For example, if you want yellow zinc chromate, Tamiya calls is yellow green (XF-4).

Here's a handy reference:
