For a case of *Beck's", I could be persuaded to get off the
subject completely....80)

*I'm* referring to Humbrol numbers, unless I specify RLM codes;
in future, I'll say H65 and H23, for example, when referring to Humbrol.
Howzat? BTW, it's purely fortuitous that Humbrol 65 coincides with
RLM 65.

If its RLM 65 and 23 then that is easy.

What's RLM 23? [I don't have my RLM chart with me]

What dilemma? 80) OK, I'll try to make it easy for you in future.
Get back with some equivalents in the morning. THe two colours we were
talking about were H65 [RLM 65], and H23 [no RLM equivalent?].
Now, could I be fairer than that? 80)
Get back to you.....
