Kurogane Colors... IJN??? Tamiya kit questions.

Hi, I just bought a Tamiya 1/48 Kurogane to go with the Zero I am working on. The kit looks nice, and I like the figures, they are actually done quite well.

My question is what color were the IJN Kurogane's? It appears the kit only has instructions for building an army version. (It includes an anchor for the front grill, but the instructions do not show this as an optional part, rather as an unused part.)

Are they the same khaki/dark khaki mix as the army? I searched google and could not find an answer.

Also, is it safe to assume the two figures are "army" and not navy? Or could they be used as naval figures as well?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jeff.

The colour for Navy vehicles is the same as for Army.

Cheers,
Peter
