Grady;
Why did you paint the dead light on the engine room hatch? The amount of detail you are adding, why take this short cut? I don’t really remember a photo where they painted over these, because, as Jeff has shown on his factory blueprint based 3D schematics, these all had “inside shutters “ , so light would not be seen on the outside. They had a strict no paint direction in one of the guidebooks or blueprints I read. Otherwise you are doing great.
Take care,
TED

Thanks Ted, what's the reason I put it out there, because I will miss or misinterpret things like this. I simply don't have the depth of knowledge about the boats. As long as things keep getting pointed out , I will do my best (skill level ) to fix them and get them right

Ted,
Once I get the frame removed, what is the background? a frosted plastic, or a blackout shade?
& are they all this way on the engine cover Also some pictures show the side frames without bars, the Elco blueprints are hard to read, but it looks like they say only the #7 frames have bars which looks to be the hatch & the Aft frame? I just want to clarify this.
As always, your input is valued.
Mike

Grady;
For the most part, those items disappeared(ie: removed, stored below, etc), they were really not used in the Pacific.
Take care,
TED

In addition to the the port and starboard lights, there is one on the stern flagstaff. It's just a slit for projecting white light. Here's a photo I borrowed from a post here showing the hardware.
