    Here's the real deal. Instead of trying for a color code from a model paint mfg, I would try to match the photo by mixing my own if i wanted to get that accurate....

    Just a suggestion....

    Flyboyj I have a number of pictures but when I print them The coulour is not always the same as it is on the screen but the numbers will give me a starting point.

    Hi All, Thanks for the Pictures the cockpit is in a 1/7th Radio controlled plane so its not going to be that detailed.

    Kend Regards

    this has been uber helpfull

    the model is only 1:48 scale, so i dont need too much detail, but it is helpful to see the brass knob to the right under the instrument panel, and the orange and red switch and dial (respectively), these are nice details which i can add and give a nice touch to the panel in the cockpit

    The colour on those retored aircraft is pretty good but beware of modern harnesses and head rests!
    Here's an original sample of the interior colour revealed by the removal of a data plate on an unrestored example.
