    I am looking for detail pics or diagrams of the Il-2 cockpit. I have found this one but it is in Russian so I can't understand it and also have screens of the cockpit from the game. Anymore would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Here is what I have so far:

    Hi Gnomey,

    There is a IL-2 Stormovik manual in the manual section, Lots of pictures of gauges and such in the manual. Sorry its all in russian but maybe it will help.

    I will download it and have a look. It should be useful but some diagrams in English (or German) would be nice as well.

    Thanks Micdrow. I don't see that photo you just posted though :\

    Can see it now thanks. The manual is good but the cockpit diagram is the same as the one I have already found.

    The only other picture I could find was this one. I thought I had a diagram for a IL-2 gauge layout in english but turned out to be for a Yak 9.

    Hopefully the pictures help.

    Unfortunately,the pic of the cockpit above is of the I-185 fighter.
    There drawings of the Il-2 cockpit.I hope it was also helpful for you, Gnomey.
    If I find free time I try to translate the Russian descriptions in your colour diagram.

    Hi !!!
    As you requested there is the English version.I hope I've done it in a proper way.I mean, I've translated it using the English grammar rules and it'll be understandable.

    why is it the insides of so many aircraft are that cream/green colour is that just a coat of primer or something?

    No,I think that it is caused by the old publications limits in colours..

    I've caught.Unfortunately I can agree with you partially only.As far as the Russian planes are concerned their cockpits were painted with light grey colour ( Humbrol 64 for instance) and in early a/cs the instrument panels were painted on the same colour.So the cream colour could be an effect of mixture the light grey AJe-9 with the yellow primer ALG-9 for wooden parts or ALG-1 for the aluminium ones.From 1941 the metal parts were painted with yellow-grey colour (50% ALG-1 + 50% A-14)
