Hi Chris,

There is a book  by Monogram Aviation Publications named "The  Official Monogram US Army Air Service & Air Corps Aircraft Color Guide 1908 1941 Vol.1" by Robert D. Archer that includes paint color chips for the five color French camo scheme. They were based in the findings by a group of researchers under "Project Butterfly"  of the sixties.  However, this is  now  a relatively old source and I´m not sure about its accuracy...
