The funnel and probably also the masts should be buff (yellowish).

Thank Maxim

Buff would be very nice color combo, with off white hull. unfortunately I already painted dark yellow. however I can always tear the part out and repaint :lol_3:
to be precise i want my Naniwa color way to represent the day on Battle of Yalu. I have link japanese website on the bottom. It seems yellow it's the color... (or at least I hope it is...)

This could be a similar gun (on display in the Forsvarsmuseet in Oslo):

Still on IJN pre-WW I cruisers:
I am working on the 1/700 Sealsmodels Itsukushima/Hashidate. Trying to establish the time period represented by the kit.

I see eleven 120mm guns and six 47 mm guns. This seems to be and entirely different rig from the Modelkrak kit.

Does anyone know anything about this kit?
Thanks,
Rick
