Scharnhorst Colour Schemes

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have the Tamiya 1/700 Scharnhorst kit to build, and would like to build it in it's " Channel Dash " colour scheme, with the aid of cross kitting the appropriate  parts from the Gneisenau kit. My question is : What colour were the turret tops, as I've seen drawings showing a shade of blue, but also ones showing dark grey ?

Looking at photos taken at the time they appear to be lighter than the rest of the turret, but that could just be the effect of light / shade. Any help would be gratefully received.  :cheers:

hey hooter

sorry for the late reply, but I used Intermediate blue for the one I built recently which seemed to be right. Or you could use Blue Grey (both Gunze)

no worries - hope to see your build here as it's one of my favourite WW2 Battleships and that scheme is just awesome
