Paint by numbers from TDH is pretty good. It’s a list of humbrol enamels and from what I can tell it’s pretty close.
 
If you search "ROTJ Helmet" on the Archive-X Facebook group you'll see a few great paintjobs and lists of colours.
Lewis/Blaidon Props shared a very thorough list that should be good starting point.
Back panels;
Tamiya x11
Reefer grey
Light green and 1975 Weyerhaeuser green
Mist 1975 dark green
Mist ANH Stormy sea

Key slot;

Tamiya x11
Mask then mist with grimy black

Dome:
Tamiya x11
SP Lark grey
GN grey green
Mist coach green (mask this on the cheeks)
Mist depot olive
Mist lark lt grey
Mist ANH stormy sea
Reefer orange with boxcar red (killstripes)

Mandibles:
Tamiya x11
Engine grime and 1975 dark green (Lower mandibles)
Lark lt grey
Dark caboose
Mist with 1976 grimy black
Mist with ANH stormy sea

Ears:

😂
)

You do ROTJ paint ups, you don't like the colors you are using now? They look pretty good. Have Famous give you his secret recipe! 😆

Sadly, I have NEVER written down the colors I have ever used for any paint ups I’ve done.

And also, I’ve asked him too many times and never taken the time to write down his response. I’m terrible I know 😅
