I have trawled all through this folder and cannot find anything that may elude to the answers I seek:

Does anyone know where there is a list of all the old codes Airfix used and the current equivalents:

G7 G9 etc M12 or whatever as are on an old kit callout

I can guess that ithe prefix is Gloss and or Matt but the following numbers don't logically then correspond to any on my Humbrol paint chart!

Thanks in advance for any help forthcoming
