That is pretty much standard wartime colors. The upper hull was, most of the time, a lighter grey than the lower hull. In U-48's case, her upper hull and CT were the color, Dunkelgrau 51, which is a dark gray. U-boat's lower hulls were a very dark blue-gray anti-foul paint called Schiffsbodenfarbe III Grau.
Hope this helps.

Not necessarily true....
Is the conning tower said to be from a specific boat? (Then it could be wrong) However, since a number of different air intake configurations were tried on the VIIB's, the model tower could be correct for one of the variants. (I haven't seen it, so can't be sure)
