The drawing for Design 32/6A for the USS Terror
and similar minelayers dated April 9, 1944. This drawing shows four vertical colors: pale gray (5-P), light gray (5-L), ocean gray (5-O) and dull black (BK) with panels of white (5-U) countershading on the stern. The deck was all deck blue (20-B). The upper panels of the mast and crane were pale gray (5-P).
Note how the design used overlapping panels to produce the effects of false perspective.
The first drawing for Design 6A was dated July 19, 1943, and was for the Essex class carriers. Design 6A was redrawn on May 26, 1944, for the USS Wright (AV-1) seaplane tender in Measure 32 colors. In June it was drawn up for transports.
