Just ordered up some 1/2400 scale ships for the Battle of Lissa. Can anyone help me with how to paint the ships? I have seen conflicting paint schemes…I have come accross images of the Affondatore in a rust/brown scheme but also in a black/dark grey. In addition, I have seen images of Austrian ships painted light grey/white but also black or black with a white stripe along gun deck.

Very confused and grateful for any guidance. Thanks!

I went with varying shades of dark to medium grey and either yellow or red funnels for my 1/600 Austrians save Kaiser (traditional SOL colors) and medium to light greys and black, yellow or grey funnels for my Italians (except their wooden ships).

Admittedly only small pieces in the jigsaw but may be of assistance?
