Default Little Joe 1 paint details

I'm building the Estes Little Joe 1.

I have Rockets of the World, and consulted it and some on-line resources before coming here.

I'm wondering if anyone has more details on the colors of the rocket nozzles, and of the mounting the smaller motor nozzles are set into.

Photos on the net reliably show the bigger nozzles as silver colored. The smaller nozzles SEEM to be black in some photos.

I'm not super-picky, but I have the option of dull-coating some silver sections to they look more like aluminium, and leaving others more shiny, or hand-painting some areas with a darker metallic color.

Also, any help with how wide the orange fin tip sections are would be nice!

Any help appreciated.
