Vampire Mk.1 - Cockpit Colour?


Recommended Posts

…. black or grey/green? Special Hobby instructions are somewhat indecisive about it.

 

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Not just black, wasn't it also a 'crinkle' finnish ( but still  black) as well?

Some parts but not all, remember, a lot of parts used would be what we now refer to as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE),  it would come from all over the RAF supply system, it would be finished to the relevant spec for that part. The spec would say matt black but one manufacturers matt black may not be as matt black as another's (it will still be black though).

Having read carefully through this thread and thought about Vampire interiors a fair bit, I am going to tentatively suggest canary yellow (make sure to get the right spec pink for the Bakelite seat though).
