I bought the 1/700 Flyhawk USS Ward (an outstanding kit by the way.) The instructions say to paint in dark gray, which I assume to mean the MS1 scheme. However, http://www.shipcamouflage.com/
shows the ship to be MS1 / MS11, which I assume to mean she started out in MS1 and was changed to MS11 as the year went on. If this is true, she would have likely been painted sea blue by Dec. 7. Before I break out the sea blue paint, does anyone have any more specific info on what her paint scheme was on Dec. 7?
