Anyone know a match for the green paint used on the 1910 maxims, seems to have more yellow tint in it than normal greens.

Someone did give me a paint number for some they had mixed up but I cannot currently locate it.

The pictures show an example at Warminster which I believe to be correct. On one of mine you can see this colour showing through under the post-war paint.

D and B Militaria from memory had three on their site a few months back and one was clearly in this colour. Obviously there were lots of variation on a theme.

If you find the paint code that would be great. The colour is near the US olive drab but a lighter more yellow finish.
