The caption reads:

Lockheed PV-1 Ventura, delivered to the US Navy as Bu. 34645 and later transferred to the Royal New Zealand Air Force as NZ4522

Amazing how well the original colors (supposedly the NZ versions of EDSG and DSG) seem to have survived on the cowling flaps, on the rest not so much tho ...

 

Edit:

All the other (tho seemingly taken at a later date) photos I found don't show these colors on the cowling flaps so I don't know if my conclusion is correct.

If, the aircraft was originally designated for the US Navy, it would have been delivered in the then USN 3/4 Tone camouflage, to the

RNZAF August 1943.

The RNZAF never at that time or subsequently, have versions of Extra Dark Sea Grey (EDSG) and Dark Slate Grey (DSG) in

its paint inventories.

(Caveat - The RNZAF did receive 4 Mk III Sunderlands late 1944 from Britain, but these were already painted in EDGS.DSG/Sky)

 

Around that time the airframe would have either flown in the original USN colours OR, it may have received a repaint in the

RNZAF Pacific Scheme, being RNZAF Pacific Blue/RNZAF Pacific Green/Sky (a Duck Egg Blue) - Note the RNZAF Pacific Green

is nothing like Dark Slate Grey.

By the time NZ4522 was written off, it may have been repainted in RNZAF Pacific Blue Uppers and RNZAF Sky Grey lowers, where the

"Sky Grey" is really a copy of DuPont Sky Type S-Grey (a Duck Egg Blue Colour) Manufactured by BALM

Dauntless has no metal part behind limousine of canopy. What about Northrop/Douglas A17/DB8?

yes, helldiver, above there's  there a lack of a squared small panel soon after the front canopy and before the motor pack:, even  the raised lines of the 1/48 model of helldiver i've show the panel

Also note a twin row radial. All signs point to SB2C.
