Yellow Dashes

Using reference photos, Adobe Photoshop and Excel I managed to calculate the length of each dash at a scale of 1:800 which came to 19 mm or about 3/4 of an inch in length with the beginning and end dash being slightly off. I started by using a ruler on a plane piece of paper to mark the areas that were to be painted yellow than applied vertical tape on top of the existing horizontal tape that was used to mask the white line. I then applied three coats of Tamiya XF-3 flat yellow allowing a 30 min dry time between coats and removed all the masking tape. Now this carrier is starting to really look like one!
