The first image represents P-40E white 56 flying aside P-40M White (or silver) 76, both of 191 IAP VVS KBF. Plane 56 belongs to the batches delivered in 1941 and wears the Dupont camouflage, but it was updated with post-1943 stars and with the white rudder. The rear part of the spinner seems glossy black, a common thing in the Leningrad area.

The second photo represents a P-40K with very similar finish.
