This is really outstanding work. One nitpick - the 1941 Colorado
has the wrong spotter planes. They should be Curtiss Seagulls,
and painted in either overall Neutrality Gray or medium blue
over light gray.

I've added the USS Arizona from December 1941 based on one of the survivor's description of what her paint schemed looked like. According to him, he was on the painting team and the hull, the turrets and the barbettes were painted sea blue 5-S as per Kimmel's orders, whilst the rest remained dark grey 5-D, yet to be painted.
I might also add an historian's edition where all of the 5-D has been painted over with 5-S.

I hope very sincerely you will do many 1941-1945 wartime US BB's drawings.
I am ready to do one (1) major round of comments/correction
