11th FS P-40E

Hi, I am building a P-40E from 11th FS/343rd FG (Aleutians 1942), and I have a couple of questions:
-The plane on this photo has Dark Green patches over
standard Olive drab upper color.
Were all planes in this unit painted
like that (especially plane No.49)?
-Did No.49 have only white star on the fuselage (without the
blue circle behind it), like represented on this model?
-What is that little fairing on the exhaust tubes? I've
never seen it on other P-40Es
-Also, did No.49 nave these stripes on the fuselage and
tail, because I have seen models built without them.
I would appreciate any help or photos of this plane.
