    Do you mean the cockpit side walls, and if so, which lines? There's a colour pic in Javlin's 1/24th scale Bf109E thread, but basically, the whole lot was RLM02, although the actual grey appears to be in between this and RLM66.

    Hi folks,

    The reissue of L.Dv.521 in November 1941 stipulated that all cockpit areas or crew areas visible through a glazed covering were to be painted BlackGray 66, principally as an antiglare measure.

    The remainder of the interior, including weapons bays and undercarriage housings, were to be finished in Green-Gray 02. Instrument panels were to be Gray 41 with individual instrument locations identified
    by a letter/number combination, usually hand painted, in either 04 or 21. Certain equipment packs
    were painted in other shades of 12 gray, e.g., battery housing in Gray 42.

    Internal piping was color coded for maintenance purposes, using the colors yellow (04), white (21), black
    (22), red (23), blue (24), green (25) and brown (26). Where 04 Yellow 04 Gelb
    23 Red 23 Rot 26 Brown 26 Braun services terminated at an external point, the relevant coloring was
    used to identify the specific service.
    Additionally, instructions and symbols relating to maintenance were painted externally on the airframe.


    Maybe this helps ( Source : Monogram German Aircraft Interiors)

    Looking good Keith. The neatness shows how much you've improved mate. Hope you can get the gear and canopy masked for painting without any damage.

    Keep practising Keith, but you've got to start sometime. OK, maybe not on this kit, but try it out on another model, even if it's one already painted you'd like to do again. Once you use it for 'real', you'll find that you'll be more focused on the job, and take care to get it right. I know what you mean though, as even now, when I go to spray a model which has taken a lot of time and effort, it's a deep breath first, then gently lead the brush to the model !

    Yep, that's a good one to use - plenty of room to have fun ! I still have an old Revell 1/32nd scale P51B I use for practising and testing - it's got more paint on it than plastic these days !!

    Hi guys

    Update come across a small problem with the rlm colour 78
    I thought i had the right colour blue for RLM 78 :oops: the nearest i have is RLM 76 so i will have to either use the 76 or try to mix a colour nearest to the 78.Painted the right shade of brown ( RLM 79 ) and Yellow ( RLM04 )
