Which 31-32 measures [green] were used on LSTs in the Pacific theatre? I've several different ones, some obviously local, looking through the Navsource pictures.

I'm not an expert on what camo, where, but if you Google "LSTs at Iwo Jima" or whichever location you're interested in. Lot's of photos come up.

I had good luck with LCI camo patterns on the Navy History Command website. I did a quick search using LST, measure and came up with these:

Glad to have helped. Ran across the different measure schemes on that site while building the Lindberg LCI as an LCI(G). Lots of good stuff on the website.

Which LST kit are you building? I sure wish someone would come out with a 1/144 or 1/200 injection molded version.

Only one I can find in 1/350 is the Iron Shipwright.

I've got another pattern as well, but can't seem to get Photobucket to upload the images. Will try later.

I always run into the problem of matching the camouflage schemes to specific ships.

For what it's worth AFV Club will be releasing one in 1/350th scale:
