Exceptionally clean and precise work!

It is interesting how the Measure 21 Navy Blue shows up differently in different images and different lighting conditions.

Don

Looking back at his previous images, they seem to range between various shades of blue and shades of gray.
I think it is one of the characteristics of digital cameras. My own camera has settings that produce similar results. I can get images that seem more like yellow lightbulb or sunshine tone . . . or I can get images with the blue tone like you see in these photos, but not quite as deep blue as these. I think the blue hue is quite attractive on a ship like this one.

There are various sources of information on line for Navy camouflage. The Wiki article is pretty good, and includes paint chips (results will vary, of course, depending on the computer, the screen, and so on): World War II ship camouflage measures of the United States Navy - Wikipedia

Floating Drydock sells a lot of books, color chip sets, and other resources: Floating Drydock

Here is one source of info on Measure 21: Measure 21

And Navy Blue N-5 is shown on this set of color chips: http://www.steelnavy.com/images/chips/USNchip2.jpg

All the chips show %-N as a dark blue. Various factors, as you say Mike, will bring out various hues.

In any event, Joe's model of Oakland looks great from any angle and in any light.
