    Atlantic Theater US Navy Schemes

    Does anyone have any images or color charts for WW2 US Navy aircraft in the Atlantic Theater. I have seen a few done up in Gray and White, which is a very stunning scheme, but am looking for more.

    The 2 Atlantic schemes ( including the Caribbean) were generally referred to as " ASW Schemes 1 and 2 "; the Specification was SR-2e ( 21 June 1944)....
    Scheme 1 : Dark Gull Gray 621 uppers, Light Gull Gray 620 side surfaces, Gloss White 511 below.
    Scheme 2 : as above but Non-Specular Insignia White 46 (later 601) replaced the LGG on sides.
    No. 2 was more common; these were on land-based patrol bombers PB4Y-1s and PV Venturas).
    Carrier aircraft on Atlantic escort carriers ( F4F, FM, SBD and TBMs) same schemes .
    Some OA-10s were finished with Insignia white top surfaces, gloss white underneath; in line with early Canadian amphibians over the North Atlantic.
    I'll see if I can find some color samples for you HTH

    Ummm... five blank posts. Looks like a image link failed or something.

    Check this site out HERE.

    Scroll down to July 1943 and you'll find color chips for ASW Schemes 1 and 2 and their ANA codes. There are also links within the SCHEME links that show aircraft camouflage patterns for TBF and SBD.
