Slightly off topic, but was going to ask a question re. Hood's pom poms. About to paint the pom poms for my
200 scale Pontos. I see the picture of Rodney's pom poms seem to indicate the barrels are painted black - with
the rest of the assembly painted hull colour. Looking at various models (not necessarily of Hood) a variety of colour
schemes have been used. (Artistic license perhaps?). Is there a definitive colour scheme or were they all different?

All the shots of the actual pompom gun shows a black metalish barrel with the end sometimes light and sometimes very dark metallic as well. The flash-suppressing cones (when fitted) appear black metallic as well. The RSP mounts have an additional jacket around the guns and these were sometime in the " local colour" as with the one below.

For Hood it's black metal with light-grey ends when fitted and blackish later. Not sure if they burned to a darker colour?
