John Jenkins Designs

The Aircraft carriers during the second World War mainly had wooden decks. The color depended on the class of ship and when it was commissioned. It also depended on whether the ship received upgrades or had battle damage repairs.

To better camouflage the carriers from the air, the decks were treated with a dark blue stain, called “Deck Stain #21”. It was approximately the same colour as the “Sea Blue” that the tops of the aircraft were painted during the tri color scheme, but not as dark as the overall “Midnight Blue” which aircraft were painted towards the end of the war.

Measures approximately 15" x 9.75" x 0.75".

Please note “BH CARRIER BASES” can be used as single, double or as a triple display.
The Double Base measures 19 ½” x 15” x ¾” (using any 2 of the 3 BH bases) can accommodate most 1/30 scale carrier fighters.
The Triple Base measures 29 ¼” x 15” x ¾” (using any 3 of the BH bases) can accommodate one 1/30 scale carrier fighter and 1 “parked” carrier fighter.
Please note BH Carrier Bases are designed to be displayed in sets of 3, "running vertically", as opposed to the IWA Carrier Bases which are designed to be displayed "running horizontally" in sets of 2.
