What color/colors should I paint the 40MM on my model? Where different parts of the gun different colors? Same goes for the 37 MM. I know the 50 cals are black or gun metal, but the 40 and 37 have different parts. Your suggestions and or pictures aew appreciated.

Hello
I think that most of them were painted the same base colour as the rest of the boat.
The loading mechanisum on my 40mm was painted a metallic metal colour & the handle's were painted a light wood colour.
Similar with my 30mm .
The sights I have painted a black colour.
Hope this helps.

I think - and I could be wrong - they were the color of the base color of the camo scheme that the boat wore.
