Tops were not white but 5L a light blue gray. 5D was a very very dark gray almost black. Look for a paint that describes itself as Tarnished Black, Grimy Black maybe Engine black but that maybe to black. Testors Early war 5L ( there is a difference in early war 5L and 1943 5L so be careful of what you are buying) may still be available on the evil site in semi-gloss.
Will not wade into debate of her colors on Dec. 7. I am not expert on the material of either side. I lean towards she was in the process of being repainted but in 5N.
does anyone have a good suggestion on color for the 1941 Arizona "dark Gray" hull color?? her decks were deck color i believe and of course anti fouling red below water line..the tops were white..but i know the rest was a fairly DARK gray..any ideas of color and manufacturer?? thanks guys..
