Re: US Enterprise June 42
I've assumed that the 'color' for gun barrels that get too hot to have paint is flat black. Is that a reasonable assumption? TIA
Gun mounts and medium guns were painted the same vertical color as the rest of the ship and not deck colors *other than* the deck platform on the 5" guns.
1.1" barrels couldn't keep paint for long given the heat generated by firing at the speed they did.
I am building Academy's kit. One detail question I am a little unclear about - were the 5" and 1'1" guns & mounts the same blue as the deck or the same gray as the vertical hull or some other color? TIA
