Look at web site www.4BO Green. They do not give you color brands to use, but give the FS 595 matches. For me I use the old Floquil Color Coach Green with a little blue added. This was from a formula from the 1970`s.

I like Humbrol 150 as one suitable colour, in fact I've used on a KV-8 that I've just finished.
Cheers

is as good as any for average colour, it darkened with age so add a little 116 for older tanks. For a new colour add a little H116.
