    Product Description
    At the end of December 1940, all carrier-based type aircraft of Naval aviation
    were ordered to be painted Light Gray overall. In August 1941, it was
    decided that the upper surfaces of carrier-based aircraft belonging to the
    Battle Force of the Pacific Fleet should be painted in Blue-Gray, whilst their
    lower areas would retain the Light Gray colour. In the coming months,
    more aircraft were gradually ordered to be painted in this scheme. The
    case was clarified in February 1942, when all fleet and shore-based aircraft
    were ordered to be painted in Blue-Gray/Light Gray scheme. In January
    1943, a new tri-colour camouflage scheme for carrier-based aircraft was
    introduced, this consisting of Sea Blue, Intermediate Blue and Insignia
    White colours. The painting scheme for fighter aircraft was simplified to
    Dark Sea Blue overall in mid-March 1944. This order was expanded to
    include all carrier-based aircraft in June 1944, and would remain valid until
    the mid-1950s.
