Grumman Goose USN interiors

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone...

I have the 1/48 Signifer JRF-5 Grumman Goose and need to know the colors of the interior to get started.

The instructions call for 'Light Fawn' but that doesn't strike me as a color that the US Navy would use in the

interior of a Navy aircaft. Any help here appreciated.

Also, are there any out-of-the-bottle acrylics for the blue/blue/white tri-color scheme? And, of course, there's

one more question...the exhausts on top of the engines (I think that's what they are)...are they some kind of

rust color, or are they a reddish color? They show kind of a weathered 'copper' or 'rust' to me.

Thanks again...I want to get started on this soon...

Jim

The interior colors of the areas aft of the cockpit would have been painted with an off-white or cream color, as many of the Goose were used as transport aircraft.

The exhaust colors would be a dirty brown or dirty rust color on the exterior of the exhaust pipe.

I wouldn't paint the exhausts with a "rust" color. I'd paint them a burnt steel color and then maybe add a few touches of rust here and there.

I did the interior of my goose in bronze green since grumman planes from that time period used bronze green as their interior paint.
