Thinking about building some IDF tracks from Peace for Galilee 1982. Is there a good out-of-the-jar color (prefer acrylics) to recreate the IDF paint?

Opinions will vary.
There have been a few out of the bottle that claimed to be right for the period, but I was never satisfied with them. Humbrol Khaki Drill does not make such a claim but is a very close match out of the bottle, as seen here:

My favorite mix is Model Master SAC Bomber Tan cut about 1:1 with Header White. You can adjust the mix for scale effect and fading since you're mixing it anyway.
