could I get some advice on soon to be AAA big headed turtles repaints?

I recently got the large AAA big headed turtle, and together with the small one I already owned I'd like to try repainting them some more accurate colours, but the more research I do it seems the more species/colour variations I find of big headed turtles

I'd love it if someone knew which species/variation each was molded from, or if thats not possible which species they most closely resemble

or just give your opinions on which palettes of big headed turtle you like/recommend

I have a few "Chinastore" big headed turtles I plan to practice on to see if I like the pattern once applied (they are very small tho, about quarter sized)


Stargatedalek, this Forum shows a walk-around of the big-headed turtle (Kaiyodo – Animatales)
that could serve as a reference for a repaint of the AAA figure:
Platysternon megacephalum is monotypical, with subtle differences at the subspecies level.
I do not know which variety was used by AAA to create the molds.
