Assuming P-40's had Desert Camo applied once they arrived in theater, would they then not have any stenciling since all the original factory stenciling would be painted over? Or would they then add new stenciling after the desert camo was applied?
My question is based on the something I read somewhere that said P-40's left US factories in US camo (?) or at least not in MTO Desert Camo.
once and aircraft is repainted (almost anywhere) the reapplication of stencils would depend first upon availability of proper stencils and a placement guide.
Next would be; a.) a really spiffy and motivated crew chief, or b.) an anal sq. commander.
This is purely an educated guess.
