    Forrest,

    Do you have or know of pictures of an original wood panel that was available to a delux buyer back in 41'?

    Thanks, Ron

    Was it actually wood, or just woodgrain paint?

      Actually it was a decal. Most were a "tope" a gray color. Some were wood grain . the doors were wood at that time. Duke Iden varifies this and he designed the wooden door too. WE think the top deck panel over the panel was a very heavy pressed paper at that time , and usually tope or some black. Some ships had the "crinkle" finish and that was and is STILL made here in Alliance at the paint company on N. Union.
