USS Bunker Hill (CV-17) 1/350 scale - color scheme
Posted by CMMX on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 11:37 AM

I'm building the carrier my uncle was assigned to during the War. It had a camoflage scheme and I'm looking for the appropriate colors. Does anyone know where I can find either Tamiya or Vallejo colors for the hull, deck and superstructure?

First off you need to decide on which scheme to paint her up in. She was launched and first cruised in Measure 21. In 1944 she wore Measure 32. Then in 1945 again wore Measure 21.

have a look here for colors and patterns

Once you decide upon the scheme, have a look for their options in your preferred paint lines.


F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

There are some good views on Navsource, in particular a good starboard view from the deck of Wasp.

Those should help you with the pattern, which varies from ship to ship.
