Does anyone have any ideas about the color scheme of the B5M "Mabel" torpedo bomber while stationed for duty in China and SE Asia?

I'd need to check at home to see exactly what schemes they depict, but B5M camouflage & marking profiles can be found on pages 57 and 58 of 'Camouflage & Markings of Imperial Japanese Navy Bombers in W.W. II' (Model Art Special Issue series, No. 406; Model Art [Japan], 1993; in Japanese; 162 pages; US$32.95) and on page 10 of 'I.J.N. Carrier Attack Bomber (sic)' (Model Art Special Issue series, No. 553; Model Art [Japan], 1999; in Japanese; 238 pages; US$29.95).
Hoping this helps,
