Hey all.

New to this forum and site. Excellent info here.
I've been searching for days for the proper camo scheme of the P40 Tomahawk in ETO for a Canadian Sqn around early 1941. This seems to be a hot topic and no-one has an answer for some reason. I always thought the P40 was Dark Grey/ Dark Green upper and a lighter grey underside like most other fighters. The referance photos I have for my squadron (400 Sqn) at that time are not clear. People on other sites mention various technical shades of DG/DE. Does this stand for Dark Green/Dark Earth OR Dark Grey/Dark earth. If you can provide the exact paint colours for top and bottom paints from different manufacturers (Tamiya,Modelmaster, etc) that would be great. If not, I was planning on heavily weathering the aircraft anyways, so I'll fake it.

I'm new to this whole computer thing.Didn't know that site existed.Great,Thanks for the info.
