The pictures in the WWP Book "In Detail No. 1 " on the Me 410 At Cosford(Great Book) has pictures of the entire A/c In particular the interior of the cockpit shows a blueish green sides of the fuselage interior cockpit/framing (pages 13-22) with pilot/ gunners equipment in 02 Instrument panels/equipment switches, seats in RLM66..

The ?: Did the Museum in the Original restoration use British Interior green (thinking no big deal-we used- it who would know) for the inside if the cockpit before re-installing the original instrument panels etc, or was this blueish green a "one-off-factory batch" of paint ?

I have a great book but unfortunate it doesn't call out colors. My guess from the black and white photo's it would be RLM 66, in the for what it's not worth column

As I recall, the RLM mandated the switch from color 02 to 66 for cockpit interiors in November 1941, so most aircraft built in January 1942 onward would have the RLM 66 interior.
