Really like the using this so easy but it's not been updated for years, anybody know why?
That is true of course. The real issue being wartime paint standards because there were variations caused by shortages. Also colours are often developed from original paint chips and they do vary, partly for the reasons above but also due to weathering and fading. That is why, say RLM02 or RLM81 might differ between model paint brands due to different chips being used. You can add to that how some paint companies try to reflect scale effect that lightens the shade.Beware that some claim to match standards (or known research into real-world paint colours for which the standard has been lost) but don’t — at least not for all colours.
