Default Looking for German paint colors

Hello everyone!
I am looking to find a correct WWII era German Yellow. I have an SFH 18 15cm gun that I am refurbishing and want to paint back to an original field/forest camouflage. From what I could tell, it was originally a dark green, light green, a red (primer) color, and a yellow. I have matched all of the other colors almost perfectly, but am having trouble finding a yellow to match.

Any help would be appreciative.

Thank you in advance.

Thank you! This link does a good job of describing how the design is created. Will research into it!

I have tried a couple of times to post pictures of what we have, one with the original paint scheme, but it is not allowing me to post them. I will keep trying, so it will be easier to understand what we are looking for.

Thank you!
Megan

These are pictures of the original paint still on the gun when we took it out of battery. It looks like they used a yellow, brown, green, and some black. We are looking for this yellow in particular, and I wanted to share these pictures with you. Thank you for all the help that's already been given. Any input on the original paint scheme and pattern would also be appreciated.
