The scene shows the Neptun Iowa shortly before a refueling by AO-22 USS
Cimarron, also Neptun, but converted long before the new Neptun version in camouflage. You can see my older types of radar antennas made of some plastic-gauze material.. While the Cimarron is wearing the measure 32/13T, Iowa shows her unique two-tone scheme of
ocean-gray and dull-black in the Pacific at the beginning of 1944. Besides the
usual additions of radar and mast-details I added some 40 mm Bofors to
distinguish from the state of the Neptun version, which shows her as completed. Also there is a row of windows under a
roof behind the armoured bridge on both sides.
