Reason: reorganise the post
Ooops, I forgot .... thank you Wurger for the jpg stuff, some things were missing for skinning.
You are welcome .Your info about the book is nice as well. THX for sharing.
An excelent post Wurger thanks .I m building a Mig 3 at the moment and was wondering which green top and blue underside colour would be from the colours you have shown , also what was the interior cocpit colours ? Thanks
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.

The kit i will be working on is the Encore 1/72 kit with the True Detail resin addon .It gives decals for the 6 IAK Moscow Defence Zone 1942 .12 Guards Moscow 1942 and AV Shlopov Moscow ,but all these are in the winter camoflauge. I wish to do mine in anything but white .Any info on cocpit colours
will be a great help as im not sure even of dashboard colours.Thanks 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.
