THE SECOND WORLD WAR
AIRCRAFT CARRIER BASES
Aircraft Carrier Base #1
(BASE SIZE 9 3/4” x 15” x3/4”)
The Aircraft carriers during the second World War mainly had wooden decks.
The colour depended on the class of ship and when it was commissioned
It also depended on whether the ship received upgrades or had battle damage repairs.
To better camouflage the carriers from the air,
the decks were treated with a dark blue stain,
called “Deck Stain #21”.
It was approximately the same colour as the “Sea Blue”
that the tops of the aircraft were painted during the tri colour scheme,
but not as dark as the overall “midnight Blue”
which aircraft were painted towards the end of the war.
