I have this Verlinden tank crew and need the Vallejo colors that I need color references for. What are the correct colors for them please?

Looks like faded Pea Dot camo. I use a book by Calvin Tan as my go to reference for painting SS Camo. It's called Modelling Waffen SS Figures. His reference states:

Base color - US Field Drab 873, English Uniform 921, German Camouflage Black Brown 822 in a mixing ratio of 5:1:1

Medium Green - Reflective Green 890

Light Green - Sunny Skin Tone 845, SS Camouflage Bright Green 833, Military Green 975 in a mixing ratio of 3:5:1

Dark Green - Military Green 975, Black 950 in a mixing ratio of 2:1

Sand/Pink - Sunny Skin Tone 845, Salmon Rose 835, English Uniform 921 in a mixing ratio of 3:4:1

Picture posting isn't working for me but if look up images for Pea Dot you'll see there is quite a bit involved.
