I'm planning to build Dragon's 1/350 Z-39 Zerstörer after its acquisition by the US Navy as DD-939.
Does anyone know if it was repainted in a US Navy color (Light Gray 5-L? Haze Gray 5-H?) or did it keep its orignal RAL (7001?) color?
Thanks in advance

Based on period photos on Navsource (http://www.navsource.org/archives/05/939.htm), it appears she retained her Kriegsmarine paint.
