Flying Tiger P-40b Colours.

Hi Guys, I'm building the old Monogram 1/48 AVG P-40b atm. I've settled on Dark Earth/Dark Green for the camouflage colours but there's a bit of conjecture about the underside colour. I've seen them done in pale grey, pale beige/khaki, light(azure) blue & RAF Sky - or "Duck Egg Blue". My understanding is that the AVG's Tomahawks were a diverted British order so my favourite is Duck Egg Blue, but I'm open to ideas. Over to you. :)

My Research pointed to Azure Blue. I'm happy with it.
