aircraft markings for leader of 33 Sentai wanted

Hi all. Any experts on Japanese aircraft markings out there?
Kiyoshi Namai led the 33rd Sentai from late 44 to March 1945.
Can anyone tell me what markings, including the colours of the markings, his Ki-43-III would have carried? Or even perhaps maybe carried?
There is very little photographic info available regarding this unit, apart from the basic white/red/yellow unit insignia options. I know cobalt blue was often used by Sentai commanders, but did this unit use that? And the size and number of fuselage bands and wing stripes always leave me confused.
I have the books by Hata, Izawa and Shores (Army Units and Aces) and the Osprey Army Aces and Ki-43 books, so no need to quote info from them, unless of course you think I missed something.
Thanks
Peter

I have no answer but I think a good place for your query is http://www.j-aircraft.org/smf/index.php, where there are many threads about such marking questions.

Thanks Laurent.
Unfortunately you can't search on that site unless you are registered, and you can't register without sending an email to a dodgy-looking email address disclosing your login details, so I think I'll pass on that site.
Cheers
Peter

J-Aircraft is a genuine site. And easily the most knowledgeable on the subject on all things Japanese (war related) including markings - which is a speciality.

You should join via http://www.j-aircraft.com/

Thanks Jim.
On your recommendation I will join, but note you can't register online any more, or at least that's what the note on the registration page says. You have to send an email to junk@pluth.net detailing the login credentials you want to use.
Cheers
Peter

Well, 10 days after seeking registration, still no response from J-aircraft.com
What a joke they are.
