P-47 Zinc Chromate: need some information

I am building P-47D and wondering what "shade" of zinc chromate is more suitable? I assume "dirty" yellow would be correct? I painted mine using Mr.Color 27 "Interrior Green" over the bare plastic and it looks like an apple green, with a hint of yellow.

Besides, interesting observation: when I tried it over the white base it looked more like a yellow with a tint of green, just like in this article: "For example, raw Zinc Chromate applied on the white background would look yellow, while applied to bare metal aluminium it would look more like apple green"

I can't take the photos right now to show what I've got, but I hope someone can help me out with the proper shade for ZC on P-47s

Thank you and I am sorry if this question will sound stupid to you.
