Might have to add a dab of flat black to get it to match. BM brought up a good point while I was on the phone with him, that some his 2 frankies are slightly different shades of green vs each other. Gonna check hobbylobby this wknd and hopefully the have the green drab of I can't get my army olive drab and flat black to match. Unless you have another recommendation.
I wasn't sure if you were referring to the green used on the interior surfaces?

Hobby Lobby does carry some of the Testors Model Master paints. Testors shows 3 different variants on Olive drab, but it is hard to determine the correct match with those example dots.
