Does anyone know what color the spinner is on this aircraft?  The photo was extremely dark and I have lightened it up, I can't tell if it's light blue or light green or some other color?  I would like to paint my 1/48th model in this scheme. Smiley

Here's the same photograph in color (more or less) from Jeff Ethell's book, "P-40 Warhawk in World War II Color."  Is there where you got your photograph as well?  Since I'm not the best at guessing colors, I'll just post it and let you or someone else decide:

Yes, that's the book I got the photo from.  The photo was so dark you couldn't see much so I lightened it some and I lightened it even more for posting here.  Haven't been able to find a site that shows marking colors for the P-40, but I have found them for some other aircraft in the past.

Thanks for the link, I will have to check it out as I haven't found anything definitive yet.
