I believe that I read somewhere (I canít remember where) previously that 5D has the same munsell value as black? Iím not 100% sure of that.
If it does, then he should convert a color photo of a ship he painted in 5D to black & white.
My Lex is painted in 5D and itís darker than any of those ďmedium grayĒ ships he converted.
While Iím not sure what color Arizona was on Dec 7, this sure doesnít prove anything.
