They started out as camouflaged in 1943, but as the war progressed and the US had long range fighter escorts, the camo was eliminated. Weight had a lot to do with the absence of camouflage, since paint adds weight. The camouflaged B-17G 'Shoo Shoo Baby' is at the USAF museum in Dayton, Ohio.

They also used to remove the camoflage in the Spring. lots of rags and turpentine. A fighter could be done overnight. Don't ask what the crewchief's hands looked like..
