Some F6F Color

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


Some screen grabs from a 1944 Grumman promotional film. These are early F6F-5s (they all have the rear quarter window). Note how blindingly glossy the Gloss Sea Blue is when new. Also note the color of the non-skid walkways.  Definitely nothing remotely close to black!  Most a/c have the last three of the Navy BuNo painted by hand on the cowling. I've found as many variations of the style of numbers as apparently there were Grumman employees to apply them! And note the color of the interior of the cowling - so-called Grumman Light Gray. I'd probably go for Light Ghost Gray on my build...
