Curtiss P-40 Warhawk & Kittyhawk
The P-40E's were originally meant for the USAAC and had the standard USAAC paint scheme scheme applied. The Dutch red-white and blue flag was painted over the US markings on fuselage and undersides of the wings.
The rest of the US markings were painted over, most probably with available paint, such as "Donker Blad": The flag was also applied on the under surfaces of the wings.
The Curtiss P-40Ns initially also had the standard USAAF colour scheme of olive drab over neutral grey.
