I've completed the OTW Type VIIc hull with the brass tower. There are a total of 4 lanterns; one on each side of the tower, one located below the winter garden in the trailing edge of the tower, and one located in a housing at the stern. What color were these lanterns? I plan on using LEDs for show....

The lights on a german type VII are pretty easy to setup: the lantern on each side of the tower are the position lights: red and green. The light at the trailing edge of the conning tower is white and so is the light in the housing at the stern.
