    Hi Mate,

    Unfortumately these tonalities of colours depend on a period of time/year etc...Could you give us more details about your MiG-3?

    Or have a look at the site.

    Hi again,

    The cockpit interior was of steel colour or the light grey one.The pilot panel was of grey colour but sometimes of black paint.
