P40 Colours

I'm currently building Trumpeter's 1/48 P40 as an RCAF aircraft flown by my squadron (400 Sqn) after it entered the war. I thought they were in Drk Green and Grey upper over lighter Grey lower.

Does anyone have exact Tamiya or other manufacturer colour numbers that match the ones used by the RCAF.
