Default "Ambush Pattern" colors available in full size spray cans?

First let me clarify...they don't have to be exact copies of the correct ambush pattern colors, but the closer the better.

A bit off-topic, but I can't think of anywhere else this knowledge might reside!

I've got a large propane tank out in the backyard. Based on pictures I've seen here, that pattern would work excellent to better hide that white monstrosity, especially where it is that gets sun filtered through trees. The fact that it's a more interesting pattern than plain three tone camouflage helps too.

It's about 9 feet long and somewhere around 3ft tall, so it will take a fair amount of paint to cover, at least the visible side of it. Thus why I'd like to find the colors from an available, somewhat affordable source for decent size cans of paint, such as Krylon or whoever.

This http://www.krylon.com/products/indooroutdoor_paint/ seems to be the type of Krylon with the best selection of colors. There are other types of Krylon, but none of them I saw had very much color selection, not like that one.

Anyone with a keen eye have a take on what colors would be the best matches? Another companies products would be fine, but I'm less concerned with propane tank colors being period correct for a late '44 KT, than I am with getting as close as possible, while being affordable.

Thanks!
