Digital Colour Chips
[Feb 2008] Update: Following a very fascinating conversation with Samsung Electronics about digital colour phosphors and representation, we have adjusted the colour samples on this page. We hope that these new values will give a better representation of the actual colours across many monitor (CRT and flat-screen, etc) types, but of course the following caveat is still quite valid....
|The following table is a digital representation of the various aviation lacquers of the 1930-50 period. We would like to respond to the very many requests for such a table on the site. However, allow us to express an ENORMOUS caveat when examining this chart-- it is intended for representative purposes ONLY. It is not currently possible to guarantee the exact colour or shade of anything drawn on a computer monitor. These samples are to be regarded only as a general familiarization, particularly for those new to the subject, and should not be accepted 'as such' with the value shown on your screen.|
