Need to know the right colors of german roadsign

Post by Dackel Staffel » Fri Nov 30, 2007 12:49 pm

Hi,

I've found an old german roadsign "Soldatenheim kino" but the time has taken its part of colors ( sides and letters in a dark blue and the rest is white). If I want to paint it like it was before what kind of blue and white I have to use ? I need the type of blue and white colors available in a nowadays shop.

Thanks.

So long.

Our local paint/DIY shop can match colours from any object, using some sort of light probe, and then mix it up for you while you wait.

1. Infantry;
2. Support arms.

Literally, Soldier's Home.

IE, the NAAFI, the pub, a place where the guys hang out.

Edit - Was a bit pissed off last night. But still...
