The one I am looking for is for USS Bennington 1965 Western Pacific cruise. The nose had a unique blue scallop design. I remember first seeing this scheme on an old Revell A4D kit # H-299 and have always wanted to model it

If that pic is labeled Shang in '56, that is from 1/2 year to a full year before the intro of the double letter tail code system. (that means that is an error in the labeling, the A4D-1 cruise was from March to November 1958)

In 1956, CVG-11 was still wearing their "V" on the tail.

I don't have the pic he has,,,,,,but, VA-113 did indeed deploy in the Bennington in 1965.
