the p38 (f5-a/b)that was converted into recon aircraft were painted a overall shade of blue
could someone tell me what blue it should be (humbrol paint if possible)?

PRU Blue. I know Humbrol used to make it. In use, the paint faded rapidly, so you might need to mix a custom color, or add a little white or light gray to tone it down.
