Hello everybody,

I’m still looking for a new model to do.
I’d like to build a navy US ship with a colorful camouflage.
I like the LCS(L), I have the Floating Drydock plan. Can anyone tell me what type of camouflage is in this photo and if you know of a port/starboard pattern of this camouflage :

Many thanks in advance

Alain

There are a couple of camo schemes shown on the Naval History and Heritage Command website. Maybe one of these is the measure in the photo:

Hello,

Thanks you very much for the link.
The pattern is that of the camouflage Measure 33 design 14-L but I do not have the impression that the contours correspond with those of the photo.
I tried to do a search on this site but I couldn’t find anything else for the LCS(L).

Another proposal ??!! :big_grin: :big_grin:

Hello,

I made 2 screenshots of a video game on Youtube featuring an LCS(L) with some camouflage :

Do you think these drawings are reliable and can be used as a basis?

Thanks in advance for your answer

Alain, that pic LCSL3 is one of my favorites.

While the measure you reference, 33/14L, contains only two colors, whatever LCSL3 is painted in the
pic is a "take off" of that measure in 3 colors. Navy Green, Ocean Green and Haze/Pale Green would
be my guess.

You're gonna have to use your artistic licence for the port side. But the drawing is a good guide.

Best,

Paul

Hello Paul,

Many thanks for your answer!

Isn’t there black, dark green and lighter green in this picture of the LCS(L)-3?

I can’t tell if the darkest color is black or a very dark green?

And have you some reference of these colors in RAL or FS standart?

Many thanks for your help ! :big_grin: :big_grin:

Alain

Yes, there is either black or navy green in the 1945 picture of LCSL3.
Which one for sure, I dont know. I'd guess Navy Green.

The two lighter shades should be ocean green and haze/pale green to my eye.

The paints I've used in the past;

5NG Navy Green FS34086 Model Master
5OG Ocean green Colorcoats US19
5HG Haze green Colorcoats US17

Best,

Paul
