No, procedures and colours were very much standardised, certainly when they left the factories. From quite early in the conflict, machines for all branches were finished in a standard Service colour. For 1940 / '41, this would have been Khaki Green No.3, later SCC (Standard Camouflage Colour) No.2 and later still, British Olive Drab.

If you're looking for ex-Works, 1941 delivery then KG3 is what you have to aim for.

298 and 499 are close equivalents/substitutes but not the actual shades for SCC15 and SCC2. Near enough for all but the very picky though - especially as there would have been some manufacturing variation likely anyway.

There’s a place in Retford (Paintman Paint) that sells a matched KG3 paint although I have never used it and have no connection  to the firm
