The Testors colour sounds a good starting point...

Andy Moore built a BATUS Chieftain over on ‘The Modelling news’

Have a look at that it might help you out..

Yeah I've seen that the problem is that Mig paints aren't that available here.

My experience with Ammo paint is it thins ok with any of the iso pro thinners...

You can get both colours from mighty ape but only seemingly in a couple of paint sets...

You might want to consider lightening up some Tamiya desert yellow with some buff to get an approximation of the UK desert stone colour.. once weathered up I’m sure it will be fine....
