Which CC paints are correct for Scharnhorst 1943,


Recommended Posts

I'm not certain tbh. John Snyder had this to say on the matter:

The precise colours of Scharnhorst at the time of her sinking by HMS Duke of York remain unknown. She may have been in standard Kriegsmarine greys, or she may have been wearing the Norwegian Theatre blue-greys described by Dechend. We will therefore provide references for both potential schemes:

 

Standard Kriegsmarine Greys

Darkest Grey in pattern—Dunkelgrau 2 (KM 06);

Middle Grey in pattern—Dunkelgrau 51 (KM 02);

Lightest Grey in pattern—Hellgrau 50 (KM 01);

White panels at bow & stern, & false bow wave—Schnellbootweiss (KM 10);

Steel decks—probably Schiffsbodenfarbe III Grau 1 (KM 05);

Wood decks—natural teak (C 01);

Boot-topping—Schiffsbodenfarbe III Grau 1 (KM 05);

Underwater hull—Schiffsbodenfarbe III Rot 5 (KM 04);

Funnel cap—Black (C 02).

 

Norwegian Theatre Blue-Greys

Darkest Grey in pattern—Blaugrau Dunkel (KM 07);

Middle Grey in pattern—Blaugrau Mittel (KM 08);

Lightest Grey in pattern—Blaugrau Hell (KM 09);

White panels at bow & stern, & false bow wave—Schnellbootweiss (KM 10);

Steel decks—possibly Schiffsbodenfarbe III Grau 1 (KM 05) or Blaugrau Dunkel (KM 07);

Wood decks—natural teak (C 01);

Boot-topping—Schiffsbodenfarbe III Grau 1 (KM 05);

Underwater hull—Schiffsbodenfarbe III Rot 5 (KM 04);

Funnel cap—Black (C 02).

Upper surfaces—RLM 72 Grün (ACLW 04), RLM 73 Grün (ACLW 05);
