I can only imagine! I saw a little of that when I was trying to figure out what colors to use on my Scharnhorst build. Come to find out, most 'accurate' colors are the result of educated guesses. Then I find out that KM colors weren't standardized the way Luftwaffe and Heer colors were. So basically, until someone finds something that's been painted 'Graphite Gray' and 'S-Boat White' and stored in a dark, nitrogen-filled container, then my guess is as good as anyone elses AND EVEN IF THEY DO - it still wouldn't look right on a 1/350 model!

I said all that to say this: Screw 'em, it's YOUR model after all.
