welcome to the forum, you also asked :
I'm not sure what colors the launch boats/cutters should be, as well as the rafts(?) stacked around the stern and placed on the superstructure. I've seen a lot of different color schemes for those details, like anything from tan to green for the rafts. Also, what color were the blast bags on the turrets ?
Boats : bottom hull was black, top was dark wood, inside floor light wood color.
Rafts : matt yellow
Blast bags : light beige, a light canvas color.
The above referenced book does not have the correct fliegersichtzeichen ( air recognition scheme ) information and colors too, ... so if you need those as well, ... just ask me referencing for which period, ... day, hour and situation you like to make your model.
@ Herr Nilsson,
thanks for the confirmation about the 2 bow waves being different on the two sides.
In order to honor a soldier, we have to tell the truth about what happened over there. The whole, hard, cold truth. And until we do that, we dishonor her and every soldier who died, who gave their life for their country. ( Courage Under Fire )
