I'm getting ready to start painting the Revell 1/144 Type VIIC as U-96 with the net cutters. I'm using three shades - light, medium and dark: dark on the lower hull, medium on the decks and light on the upper hull and conning tower sides.
1) What about the net cutter mounted on the upper deck, the fixed railings beside the tower and the aerial supports on the aft deck? Should they be light - like the upper hull - or medium, like the deck to which they're mounted? I can make a case either way, but thought I'd see what more experienced Kreigsmarine modellers might say.
2) Regarding the deck gun, near as I can tell it should be light underneath and medium - like the deck - on top. Right?
Any help will be appreciated, otherwise I'll flip a coin. TIA!!
