Any recommendations for spray paint that would work for the vehicle base colors of the Israeli and Egyptian armies used in the 1963 war?

Israelis: possibly Army painter skeleton bone with a soft tone wash
Egyptian: possibly Army painter desert yellow however a more yellowish color would be better.

their primer are a bit thick so spray in thin layers at a distance.

I'd check the tamiya range first, have a feeling they'll be able to get you closer to the actual colours than any of the alternatives.

Are you talking '73 or '67?

Oops, 1967. Have to take a mulligan on that one.

I use the tamiya spray for my WW2 vehicles.

I used to dessert yellow or a brown as an Arab base-prime coat and then airbrush on Vallejo Buff.

For the IDF, prime-base in black and then airbrush Vallejo Greatcoat Gray or Green Gray.
