Re: Thetis Bay LPH-6
Color photos are rare for the post war escort carriers. However, if you look at post war Essex carriers, they appear to be a medium-dark grey (usually faded to light grey with worn areas of wood showing through). I would expect that sand (or similar grit material) was used in the paint for a Non skid surface.
I'm building a 1/144 Thetis Bay as LPH 6 in the late 50`s.What color would the flight deck be at this time? It still had woood planking.
