GPW 1871 has what looks like yellow. I am assuming it is the green that you are referring to.

You can buy it where they sell aircraft paint. It has been banned at least in my state on anything but aircraft as EPA has no say. Boats and aircraft are exempt from EPA regulations on paint and fall under different government agencies.
