Hi G. Thanks for the answer. I too like the German WWII Panzer red brown
and will go with that.

Nobody knows. Americal instruction states 6E8... And it's probably
from O'Connor, though article by O'Connor I have states 6E7 - but he
his statement on "single fabric sample obtained from Albatros D.III in
which is solidly covered with Brown 6E7 paint" - I don't know if it
Gerrard's fake sample, as O'Connor doesn't mention the origin of it. In
general O'Connor writes that samples are from Gerrard's collection, so
time sample may be original. O'Connor's caption ti the Schrimpl's photo:
"overall dark camouflage, quite possibly Brown 6E7". I'd go with the
brown I like, IMO German WWII Panzer Redbrown is cool, also I like brown
from German pre-WWII three-colour splinter camouflage.
