Land-based Type 89 12.7cm AA Gun

Hi folks,

I'm currently building the Pit Road 1/35 kit of the Type 89 12.7cm twin AA gun, and the plan is to put it on a base to depict one of the gun positions on Sokehs Rock, overlooking Kolonia, the capital of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. I have two questions:

1. What colour would it have been? On board a ship, grey of course, but on land? I think green, and this may be borne out by this photo I took in 2004, which seems to show green paint over grey. Anyone care to suggest which green?

[linked image]

2. What uniforms would the gun crew have worn? The kit gives me four sailor figures, but they're wearing ship-board uniforms. I imagine on land it would be tan shorts and short-sleeved shirts.

Any help in this would be appreciated.
