If I missed this earlier in the thread I apologize...

I'm working on my 1916 Arizona model and have begun applying paint. Does anybody know whether the decks above the main decks were light grey, dark grey, wood planked, or brown linoleum?

Also, were the ships boats painted the same grey as the ship? What color were the interior/upper surfaces of the ships boats?

Thanks!


Maybe this will help. It's from 1927, but not sure the decks or boats would be any different.

Good thing he passed away peacefully in his sleep. He already endured more pain than most of us could ever bear. RIP Sir, and Thank You for your service.

Another option would be to go with "Scale Color". It uses white or light shade of gray added to the original color (in this case the dark grey) to take into account scale and or weathering. Check the Tips and Techniques part of this site with the link I've attached. Actually what I'm referring to when I say "weathering" would more appropriately be described as fading of the paint color over time due to the elements.

You also have the option, with very minimal modification (mainly: delete the radar platform on the foremast and add the range clocks to both tripods), of portraying her in the first half of i941, painting her up in a nice, bright (compared to Ms. 1 - either version) Standard Gray - and you get to paint the Kingfishers in full yellow-wing glory!

Thanks Sean - I will give this option some consideration. Not seen it done that often before.

Some combination of 5-D Dark Grey and 5-S Sea Blue or 5-O Ocean Grey is most likely, but we have nothing official to back that up.



Thanks for the advice.

I'd seen the colour schemes on the Whit Ensign and Sovereign Hobbies website and was looking for decent colour match and advice, and to see if others had found some combination or shortcut that worked.

Trying to get the right combination to represent accuracy and still allow the detail of the model to be visible is proving to be more complicated than the model.

I'm going to have to make a decision at some point. :smallsmile:

Hi all.

Just about to get into my 1/200 Arizona with the full Big ED PE set, White Ensign additions and the Scaledecks.com wooden deck, but here is what causing me a headache - the age old argument of colour.

I'm torn between the absolute accuracy of the darker sea blue which can swallow a lot of the detail as it absorbs the light, or lightening up the model with a medium grey on the verticals to help the detail pop out a little more.

I have seen some beautiful models which have been painted in a medium blue-grey/medium grey similar to the Mr Hobby H53.

However, I'm really struggling to find a shade of Acrylic that will allow me to maintain a degree of accuracy but still allow the detail to show.

I am geared for Acrylics but would appreciate any advice on what colour paint you guys might suggest to help narrow it down. I'm happy to do some mixing if that is necessary. I've attached a picture below of a colour scheme that appeals but would welcome any advice.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Let's hope it stays there forever since your post is on a "forever" thread and we hate it when information goes out of date!

I originally posted these pictures of my completed scratch built 1/192 Arizona in the Main Forum, but I thought they also belong in this thread.

  Post subject:  Uss Arizona -Hull fuel lines  Reply with quote
Hi There,
I am building Trumpeter's 1/200 USS Arizona, and have been reading members build notes and taking note of the pictures members have placed on the forum. In turn which has inspired me to incorporate the hull "fuel lines" myself as a nice touch.
my question is, was the fuel line fitted on the starboard or portside or both sides to the upper hull? as I have seen postings with all variations?

Any advice appreciated

Thanks :thumbs_up_1:
