Truly a gorgeous build, and my congrats! I was however a bit taken at seeing Helldivers on deck in 1943. I know Yorktown did the sea trails for the SB2C while on her shakedown cruise in May of 1943. However I believe Yorktown's first combat Air Group 5 actually used SBDs as dive bombers from August 31 1943 until April 30 of 1944. Apparently Air Goup 1 that came aboard later and used SB2Cs in the Marianas campaign (June 11 to July 28 1944). By then (sometime prior to May 44') however Yorktown was in Camo 33-10a. I believe Yorktown also carried a red stripe through the #1 elevator foward during her early deck painting configuration. It may be on your deck but I could not make it out in the photos. Again she looks gorgeous and I always appreciate seeing Yorktown done so well.keith hufnagel


Keith, Thank you for taking the time to look at and comment on my Yorktown. Most of the carriers in my collection are all blue, blue hulls and blue decks so I wanted to do something a little different. I decided to do an early Yorktown in her shakedown, "Wing and a Prayer" and early "The Fighting Lady" movies theme before she left for the Pacific and the war zone. I used the SB2Cs for that time period. I painted her blue with a weathered wood deck. The red stripe is hard to see but it is on the flight deck and does run past the forward elevator. I had thought that it was yellow, grey or white until I got "The Fighting Lady" DVD and saw that it was red.

Thanks again Keith for your kind comments and by the way, your stunning Yorktown build is truly remarkable.

From the photo, it seems that the top row of diagonal "bumps" on the beehive should face the direction opposite of the bottom row - is that so?
