Camouflage Options for WW2 USS Enterprise

Fairly new to ship modelling, I am wondering which camouflage schemes would be appropriate for USS Enterprise during the course of WW2. I understand that the correct term is ‘Measure’, but am not sure as to the actual colours applied to the hull, deck and superstructure of this particular vessel. Since I paint with Humbrol and Revell enamels, I am looking for a reasonable colour match.



Hi Paul,

I guess it depends on which scheme you like best; Enterprise colors ranged from an overall light gray at the beginning of the war to a complex multi-color dazzle scheme, to an overall dark blue at the end of the war…
