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.

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.

In pictures or in reality ? 'Cos I didn't catch ,what you had in mind.
 
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)
 
You are welcome Lanc.;) But you have already known about it, for sure.
