Your kind of working backwards; unless they match an exact FS color there wont be a match. http://www.colorserver.net/browse/ is the FS charts on the net. Compare what you have to try to get a match.

I am just trying to get it as close as possible, as the colours I posted above, are the actual colours of the P-51 that I want to replicate. Will have to take a good look and do some experimenting.
Thanks for the response.
