Default SEAC P-47Ds, Foliage Green?

I'm about to the stage of being able to paint two recently built 1/72 P-47Ds. I have several already in either nat metal or OD/Neutral Gray, wanted a couple that looked ... different.

For one I'm going to take a shot at the two-tone blue over nat metal ETO scheme, for which there are lots of suggestions for color mixes. Not sure what I'm going to settle on, but I feel I have a handle on the choices that are out there.

For the other I want to do a SEAC green/dark earth/sky scheme. I'm trying to figure out if the SEAC T-bolts used RAF Dark Green, or the "Foliage Green" color that is believed to closely (for my purposes anyways) approximate FS-34092 (see: http://www.clubhyper.com/reference/f...eenrefgb_1.htm ).

My concern here isn't whether I get the shade perfectly right (the information out there seems to indicate that it's possible to get close, but not perfect. I'm going to be happy with "close enough"), but to make sure that "Foliage Green" was the green used on (some?) SEAC P-47s. Anyone know?

Many thanks!

The camouflage scheme used on Far East RAF Thunderbolts was the Temperate Land Scheme. Dark Earth & Dark Green uppers, Med Sea Grey undersides.
