A possibly similar question came up a while back re: the Wiking Forrestal Class carriers and their yellow colored decks, the plastic ones (I have one). Someone (most likely Paul) posted a terrific answer to the question.
I don't know if this is similar to what your are asking and, if so, I don't know how far back the archives go for this forum.. Cheers.
One of my favorite bigger-scale model builds as a youth was the Revell USS Midway.... as I recall, the box art showed her in bare wood decks with chrome-yellow deck markings, a la pre-war USN CV practice. Was there a time (if so, probably between 1946 and 1950) where any of the ships in this class appeared this way? I doubt it, but it would make for a fun re-paint if so!
