It definitely doesn't match the color on the real model that I see with my eyes, either purely as an RGB color, applied to geometry in LDView (with any of LDView's lighting options), or in your high-quality render. Your render seems to match the color I see in LDView.

maybe we should try one of the other RGBs listed for 191:

LDD's color looks the most accurate to me, but since I don't have a calibrated monitor, I guess the problem could be on my end.

I agree that the LDD color looks better, and actually I use the latest beta ldconfig.ldr which uses LDD color data. But I have no control over Studio render color (I guess I could patch the value in the renderer source file, but that's another story...)

Just out of curiosity, I've noticed that by far the most common "error" of any OMR submission is "no stickers." I always create the stickers for any model I build (if they're not already in the library), but it's entirely possible that the stickers I'm creating wouldn't be OMR-compliant if I were to submit them. Is that the main reason people don't bother with the stickers—because there's no officially "acceptable" way to create them? Or is it just that most modelers don't undertake the extra effort?

For me it's 2 reasons:
- Most of my sticker sheets are in storage. I download instructions from Lego so I can alt-Tab between LDCad and my PDF reader but not such luck on stickers.
- There's currently no method for including textures with OMR models. This is because I wrote the OMR spec before we had any TEXMAP parts in the library.

Yep! You have also to consider that not all model builders are able to author a part or sticker. In addition such projects are long runners. It took almost a year and half to get the 10246 - Detective’s Office done 'cos of a few missing parts.

The other problem is that most stickers (and to a lesser extent, patterns) are not so reusable, so it is less "useful" to model them, compared to create a new shape that can be used in other sets, MOCs, etc...
