lustercote is a very close match but not long ago Ultrakote had matching color paint but we can no longer get it. I still don't know if you can get it in Europe or not?
Radio South has been making the matching paint for Ultrakote for several years now. It's a good match but I thought it was a bit over priced. Pull up there web site and see what you think.

I went to an auto paint supply and had them match cub yellow paint in auto enamel. Had them make a spray can. It is a little pricey, but after you factor in hazmat shipping for spray paint, it wasn't much more.

I have the large Hangar 9 Sukhoi. The orange and cream colored one. Wally World had an orange in a rattle can that matches perfectly. I believe the brand is Valspar

The paint Oracolor (still available in Europe) is supposed to match Ultracote (called Oracover in Europe). However, the last batch i had a German friend send me did not match well at all. Turned out to be an expensive cowl and wheel pants paint job that do not match the covering.
