Thanks for the advice, I'll see if I can find some time to look at Vuescan again.
It was a long time ago but I think my issue was that it may have been applying incorrect gamma curves to each channel, or something like that. Perhaps it related to a film-type setting. Whatever it was, I could just never get the colours right in Photoshop. If I can figure that out it'll make things a lot easier.

I should try Vuescan again but last time I did I just couldn't get usable results from it (the colours were wonky).
I've just scanned a heap of 20+ year old old b/w and colour negative
films with Vuescan and an Epson F-3200 (not Perfection 3200!) and the
colours are mostly acceptable. Getting them right while printing in the
darkroom used to be a lot more hassle.
I don't do any colour correction in Vuescan, save the scans as 24 bit
TIFF files and do all the rest in DxO Photolab 4 in the same way as I
treat my digital RAW files.
Maybe you'd like to try the current version of Vuescan. Do stay away
from the built-in film profiles. I leave the setting under the Color tab
at "Generic Colour Negative" and usually get results that can easily be
tweaked into something quite acceptable.
Here's a few I've scanned over the last days. The first one is from the
very first colour neg film I've ever developed myself. Click on the
images to get a larger view.
