USS BB Missouri circa 1944 question

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone 

Despite spending quite a while looking for the answer to a basic question, I am still non the wiser.

What were the colours used for the camo they had on her? The only answers I kept getting were haze gray and a blue but she had a 3 colour camo. The colour sheets I see are not sharp enough to make out the required colours (and they're not vectored images either)

Do any of the paint makers have a specific set for this ship in this time period? If not, what Gunze or Tamiya paint will do? TIA

All good but thanks anyway. Does anyone have the Tamiya kit? If so, could you please have a peek at the paint call outs and tell me what they say. I just cannot find a clean copy that I can actually read. I so must be getting old....er

The instructions are on Scalemates:


The paint required are listed on page two.

Awesome! Even though they were for the 1991 outfit, I'm still uber thankful as you lead me to a great resource that I hadn't paid any attention to until now. 

These are all the instructions available on Scalemates for the Missouri in 1/350:

And this is for the 1/200 scale Trumpeter kit:
