I'm sorry if I have missed this in my search here and this was already discussed. I was wondering if anyone had any reliable sources on which warships had what color of shells? I am interested especially in verifying the Battleship Kongo's for a painting I want to do. In Thomas Cutler's book on Leyte, he stated the Yamato's shell splashes were pink, and that Kongo's were yellow. However, I read somewhere on another forum that the Kongo's was red. Any tid bits would be appreciated!
