'Deck Blue' changed a few times over the years, there are lighter and darker shades depending on the theatre of operations and if detection from the air was paramount or not. Later in the war, when the axis air forces were largely destroyed and the allies had overwhelming air superiority the emphasis moved to the vertical surfaces to confuse subs and the few remaining surface ships the axis had.
Then the emphasis switch
ed back to the horizontal surfaces when the Kamikaze attacks developed. So probably the lighter Pacific variant is what you need for USS Kid at the end of the war.
You are lucky that Kidd has been preserved as a museum ship in her 'end of war' state 👍 if you Google USS Kidd I'm sure you'll find the museum site with more colour pics.
Also, the display
on different web site
s will depend on many variables, for instance:-
How the sample was photographed; white balance, colour balance, lighting
; intensity and type - Kelvin temperature etc.
How the photos are digitally interpreted and integrated in the web site
The times of 'The camera
never lies' are unfortunately long over!
Added to that is how your PC or Dumbphone/tablet display
s the web site
, similar problems;-
Type of display
, colour / contrast / brilliance settings etc etc. Power saving settings can affect these!
If I were you I would use the Measure 22 scheme as shown on the colour pic and described on the Wiki page. That's apparently what the USN went back to when the kamikaze attacks started.
Your basic choice is enamel
= Colour Coats, or Acrylic = LifeColor 😉
Personally, I would go for the 1944 dazzle scheme cos it's more interesting and unusual, but then I'm just NUTS! 😁

PS Hofbrauhaus is for the tourists! I've been there maybe three times in 38 years?
Once on my very first visit to Munich in 1980, then, after I started working here in 1985, only with customers who insisted on going there.
Too loud and expensive, there are many better, less touristic, ones in Munich. Prost allseits!
PPS haven't been to the Oktoberfest for years for similar reasons!
30 years ago it was still fun, but not now 🤔
