USS Lee Fox (DE-65) on October 13, 1944, at New York wearing the modified 32/3D as in the drawing. Lee Fox has added four 40mm gun tubs replacing the torpedo tubes, but has retained the 1.1-inch AA aft, and has HF/DF on the mast top instead of the SA air search radar. Photo source: NARA BS 73428.
Lee Fox again from the starboard side at New York again on October 13, 1944, wearing 32/3D modified. The vertical colors are dull black (BK) ocean gray (5-O) and light gray (5-L) and appear very weathered. Photo source: NARA BS 73427.
Lee Fox again in New York from the starboard stern on October 13, 1944, wearing a much weathered 32/3D modified camouflage pattern. The panels on the stern quarter reveal possibly two applications of ocean gray using different mixes or done at different times. It may be that the drawing's stern view was confusing and the aft stern panel was added later and did not match. Photo source: NARA BS 78431.
USS Lee Fox (DE-65) again from the port stern again in 32/3D modified on October 13, 1944, in New York. The pattern on this side is also very weathered and shows different shades of paint. In this view the pipe structures around the added single 40mm guns are visible. These prevent the guns from firing into the ship since they are only controled manually. Photo source: NARA BS 78432.
Lee Fox is shown again from the starboard bow in a good view in New York on October 13, 1944. The light gray on the bridge appears to be more recently repainted than the light gray on the hull. Photo source: NARA BS 78429.
Lee Fox again from the stern at New York on October 13, 1944 wearing 32/3D modified. The panels on the stern clearly show weathering and what is called chalking. The starboard panel on the stern appears to be freshly painted light gray. There are two types of depth charges visible, one in the starboard rack and the other in the port rack.
