Dimensions in 1/32nd Scale for Essex-Class Carrier Decks

Recommended Posts

Looking to recreate the white lines of boxes dividing the landing area from the rest of the deck in this photo or others. The markings seem as though they varied a bit from ship to ship, but I don't want to estimate myself and get something that looks wrong.

I have actually built a section of an Essex Class deck, and recall finding the info online. The problem is that I can't remember exactly where, but I do know it was public record and it included the dimensions as well as the colors (FS #s) for the paint. I'll try to find the sites, but one to start with is Haze Gray & Underway - Naval History and Photography, or NHHC


I do know my info was to WWII specs from the builder's original contract, that I converted to 1/32 scale for a Hellcat dio. If worse comes to worse I'll measure mine and give you the info.
