I'm ready to start my AJM 1/700 HMS Vindictive kit and want to model it as it appeared during Baltic Sea operations in 1919 and would like to know correct color for top of flight decks. Instructions indicate white but other sources show dark gray. Has anyone started/built this kit yet?

The AJM instructions may be interpreted to indicate white flight decks, but they may also seem to show white wood decks as well; this doesn't seem correct. I'd go with dark gray for the flight decks.

Thanks Tim for reply and photos; photos seem to indicate what HMS Vindictive looked like during 1919 deployment to Baltic.
