Thanks Jerry, that color reminds me of what a machined steel shaft looks like when it's protected by a thin coat of cosmoline. I worked as a welder in a machine shop and our shafts were cosmolined for shipping. It kinda looks like Model Masters' steel color too. Thanks for the pictures.---John

Thanks Jeff. I found a picture of 107 with searchlight, but your drawings gives me an exact location and how to mount it. Also in this picture the American flag is flown at the same height as another flag. Shouldn't it be on the right side, starboard, when viewed from the front?---John

Blame yourself Dick, you're the one that gave the DVD to me! It was like giving crack to an addict. But I'd need at least another lifetime to get them all into 3D at the rate I work. Even then, there is so much more info on the drawings. Anyone with a deep interest should own a copy.

Actually, I believe the light color was #5 Standard Navy Gray, rather than 5-L Light Gray, but will gladly defer to anyone having more concrete info than I have at hand at the moment.

Cheers,

Generally, you can have a warm, fuzzy feeling about whatever Snyder says about USN camouflage.

For those of you who don't know him, John has studied USN camo for decades and has produced a line of paints matched to the same standard as the WWII USN did - the 1929 Munsell Book of Colors.

Hello---been a while , I have my early PT-109 done and here are a few pictures-- I will be starting my PT-107 using the Revell PT-109 kit but not for a bit. I am moving, 1200 miles from New England to Fl so it will be a few weeks to month at least. Thanks to all for the pictures and help, it was most appreciated!---John
