I don't normally use Tamiya paints but I need some RLM02, as quickly as possible, and I will be heading to a shop on Tuesday and they only stock Tamiya paints. The instructions on the Tamiya 1/48 Bf109E give a mix (XF22:1 XF49:1), which I guess is fine but, since the advent of proper colours for RAF camo when the Spitfire Mk IX was released I was wondering if there is a single colour for RLM02?

And just in case if you know the reference in Gunze Sangyo paints that might be useful too.

Thanks in advance

Correct, some mix a bit of XF-49 into the XF-22 to get a more greenish look, but XF-22 will be nice, too.
