Greek T-6Gs colour question


Recommended Posts

G'day people,

 

I need to know the wheel well colour for HAF T-6Gs please?

 

I cannot find any clear pics of this area and I am leaning towards the same colour as the exterior finish, i.e. not Interior Grey Green (IGG) as the u/c legs and from what I can make out the inside of the gear doors is also the same colour as the exterior.

 

Would it be safe to  assume this inside of the flap wells would also be the same as the gear wells?

I'm unsure what you mean by IGG: Grey Green interiors was on British aircraft so there is no reason for it to be present on the postwar rebuilds.  These will have been whatever the USAF aircraft were.  I suspect any built with NA's interpretation of a US interior green would have been repainted during the overhaul, but perhaps not?

 So you don't know what colour the wheel wells would have been painted then?

it appears (to me) that wheel wells are painted the same aluminum colour as the airframe

 

G'day Pameinos,

 

Efharisto para poli, eisai protos!

 

Thanks very much Pameinos.

 

I don't suppose you would know if the flap area was also painted the exterior colour?

It also looks as if HAF Texans did not have their main undercarriage doors fitted? 

 

cheers,

-I believe the flap wells were also painted with the airframe aluminum colour.

-All Greek T-6G's after 1960 appear to to have their L/G doors removed.

 

best regards,
