Colo, few comments/idea's:

AA Guns:
You need to draw:
- the single 40mm Bofor mount (various Mk's ?)
- the Mk 15 quadruple 20mm oerlikons mount (used in very limited number onboard some US BB/CV's in 1945)

Technically, I don't "need" to draw anything - I consider this thread to be secondary to my actual drawings, and I post things here to help people out. ;)

As BB points out the Thunderbolt mount for the 20mm Oerlikon was already drawn, and I believe the single Bofors has also already been drawn (it's so common I'm sure it's somewhere...)

The SOC Seagull has also been drawn in SB scale...

- Haze Gray (1945)
- Light Gray (1945)
- Deck Gray

Wow, that must've taken a lot of research, Colosseum...

Not particularly... all the colors are available on the Wikipedia article referenced in the first post. ;) However I'm not entirely sold on some of the "final products" - sometimes when these colors are applied to drawings, they look really odd. I find this most with Haze Gray and Light Gray. Naturally, there are very few color photos of ships with these colors, so it's hard to determine what they should look like in a drawing. I usually end up going with what looks best...

Master sheet updated with new antennas:

- AS-56 / SPR-1 "double cone" RCM monitoring antenna
- AS-56 / SPR-1 "fat dipole" RCM monitoring antenna
- AS-37 / SPT-4 "wagon wheel" RCM monitoring antenna

TDY jammer antenna updated (first version was wrongly scaled).

TDYa / TDY-1a radome added (S-band jammer consisting of two transmitters located near the deck edge and a single receiving antenna located high up in the upperworks - both identical externally)

Sorry Colo, is it possible that you may have switched around the side and plan views of the 66AGC and 66AFJ "sky pole"? Because according to the pictures of BB-56 and CB-1 you posted, it appear so.

Good catch... drawing these tiny parts makes you slowly go insane...

Great work on the colour schemes.Would it be possible to have these along with the Royal Navy ones standardised as on a part's sheet ?

Yep - that was the plan. Eventually I think it would be cool to have all the colors for all the navies in a chart like this.
