Information regarding physical aspect of the Indianapolis
Permalink Closed


My brother Tim and I are very interested in the story of the Indianapolis.  Not only in the tragedy, but also the other missions the ship carried out.

Currently I have decided to build a 1/350 scale model of the ship for my brother for Christmas, and I am interested in making it as detailed as possible.  The pictures on the box and the instructions tell me to paint the decking a shade of sea blue, which I found to be somewhat unusual.  Is this accurate, or was it a paint scheme the ship took on later as part of its camouflage?

Looking forward to reading later discussions!
