Oh, awesome! I don’t know why the picture doesn’t display for me, but I can click on it to see you did the mod. I had to look twice at the New Orleans because the pair reminded me of the Portland & Indianapolis picture of FOlewnik’s ships, but when I noticed it (right before writing this post, actually) my first thought was, “Seamless!” It’s not just the paint job that’s different! Great job on the Measure 32/Dazzle camo on the Portland, too- did you use the Navy plans from Navsource.org? They certainly help. I found another source for Navy diagrams as well- https://www.wikiwand.com/en/World_War_II_ship_camouflage_measures_of_the_United_States_Navy. Good color guides and links near the bottom of the page to pages dedicated to each ship type (BB, CA, CL, DD, etc.) with Navy camo plans for every ship in the fleet that received a Dazzle type.
Keep up the great work and please keep adding to the post! I’m sure I’m not the only one who’d like to see more.
