I found that using http://www.easyrgb.com helps quite a bit when it comes to matching paint with different vendors here in the United States. It has a lot of manufacturers in it, so hopefully that will help out. I usually search using the RAL and then match that to the vendor.

Hello Harry from a fellow Briton living in the US. Pumpkin pie is generally a shade varying from a rich brown to a yellow-orange colour. Pumpkin pie colour.jpg

The instructions for the watermill say that the pumpkin pie color is the same as the "earth tone medium" color from the Earth Tone Painting Instructions page.

http://www.hirstarts.com/painting/painting2.html#earth

If you go to that page and read across the table for "earth tone medium", it gives you the names and codes for that particular color from four different paint manufacturers. You might not be able to get your hands on those specific brands, but take that info to wherever the Queen's loyal subjects buy their house paint, and I'm positive they'll be able to get you a match.
