Re: 1942 USS New Orleans Sea Blue/Navy Blue paint schemes
New Orleans was in the yard at Pearl during the attack. Whether or not she was repainted then is uncertain. However, from mid January to mid February of 1942, she was at Mare Island getting radar and 20MM guns, and so emerged in 5N, which she was in for the rest of the year.
When did the Nola receive her Ms 11 and Ms 21 paint schemes? Iím looking to do her in her Sea Blue scheme.
