thanks for your suggestions. Camouflage colours are a difficult matter, especially repaintings in the field with only black&white photos on hand. Unfortunately in this case there`s also a lack of information what colours the Curtiss factory applied, which colours have been used on which serial no. etc.
Anyway, thanks again for your reply!

Dear All,

I`m confused about camouflage applied by Curtiss on P-40E:
Several publications indicating that all 1500 built P-40E-1 are indentical to Kittyhawks IA (under LendLease). As to Dana Bell`s research, ALL those P-40E-1/Kittyhawk IA were delivered by Curtiss in British Standard Colours; but obviously there were some P-40E-1 in USAAF colours painted Olive drab/Neutral grey?! But its very unlikely that those aircraft have been repainted in the field...
Has anybody more information about this issue?
Any help/comments are highly appreciated!

What about the use of wheel well canvas on P-40`s? Were they used regulary, or only in desert terrain? Was the tail wheel well always covered with canvas?
Thanks in advance for any information!!!
