Which paint for Caterpillar Yellow

Has anybody figured out what to use for Caterpillar Yellow. I'm painting a couple of old Woodland Scenics kits of Caterpillar earth moving equipment for a flat car load.

I used Scalecoat UP Armour Yellow on one a few years ago which worked out pretty well, but my bottle is dried up and I don't have any handy.

Since there are no decals on these, it seems this might be a good project for me to use in learning how to spray Model Flex. I wonder if their UP Armour Yellow would be close?

Thanks for any suggestions.
