I'm starting a 1/72 scale Fujimi F4-D and this is the first time I've painted a Vietnam era jet in the Dark green / Light green / Light brown camo scheme. Fujimi lists the FS numbers for these colors as: 30219 for the Lt Brown, 34102 for the Dk Green, and 34227 for the Lt. Green.
For some reason - the light green looks way too light. Can anyone confirm if these color call-outs are correct ?

Bernie & John - Thanks for the enlightenment guys ! I figured it was wrong, but wasn't 100% sure.
You picked up on another error in the color descriptions that I didn't even question and I didn't mention. They called out FS17875 for the undersides. (Gloss White)
By the way John - Yes, I saw your Skyraider, very nice job. At a local air museum they have a Skyraider that might be restored someday . Whata hulking beast ! It just seemed huge.
These charts are always a good starting point to check colours:

The first F-4C's were painted in Gull Gray, FS 36440 over gloss white, the same as Navy and Marine Phantoms. Only the F-4C and RF-4C were painted in gray over white until 1964 when all aircraft started coming off the line painted in the SEA camo.
