C-54D Cockpit/Interior Colors


Recommended Posts

Picked up Revell's C-54D.  Anyone know any good references for the cockpit and interior colors?  The instructions say interior green for the cockpit and the interior areas.  The few pictures I can find of cockpits show a gray color.  Not sure if they are original paint or repaints.  The landing gear bays and other areas do appear to be interior green on most photos.

C54 cockpit colours varied depending on who operated it originally.  US Army planes were usually interior green and US Navy planes were usually a bluey shade of gray.  Most DC-4's in civilian use were originally C-54's with only about 200 DC-4's being new builds for the airlines.  I seem to recall that most civilian DC-4's sported a similar colour to the Navy planes.

 

 

Hope this helps,

Michael
