Have been using this reference to paint USN and IJN ships for Victory at Sea.
I am wondering what colour was used on the blast bags/covers where the USN and IJN main guns join the turret face?
Not sure if it is canvas or something else, but from photos it is much darker than the deck or horizontal surface colour.


Japanese blast bags were standard off-white canvas. The canvas quickly darkened. I have seen a lot of illustrations and models with light tan colored blast bags. Blast bags on USN battleships and cruisers were rubberized canvas and painted black. Canvas on USN ships (boat covers, etc) was usually dyed the same dark blue as the decks.
