Don't know what paints you're using but the green of the actual camo looks close to Tamiya Olive Green (XF-58), the tan looks close to Tamiya Buff (XF-57) & the brown looks like a mix (approx. 1:1) of Tamiya NATO Brown (XF-68) & Flat Earth (XF-52).

To tone down or "fade" the colours I'd use a very thin mix of Tamiya Deck Tan (XF-55) misted over from an airbrush, if you have one.

I just replied back on the What If Forum.

I fixed it. I used the appropriate MM enamels. Here is the redone BDU camo with the MM enamels. Well, the green and the tan are MM enamels. I left the brown as is. It just needs a flat coat now.

Got the head/helmet painted and the skin tone on the arms. Needs some touch ups but the smallest brush I have is a 3/0. I need a little smaller with a finer tip like a 4/0 or 5/0 for some of the finer touch ups. Hoping to pick some up soon so I can finish it. The rifle needs painting as well. When I finish the touch ups and rifle then it will get a flat coat.
