Luftwaffe mK.6 Canadair Colors

I'm looking to find out what color the landing gear would have been as well as the bays and backside of the doors.  Building a early 60s NM finish one but also plan to build some painted ones.

Silver for gear legs and inside of all gear doors.

Thanks, you happen to have any good reference photos so that I can detail the areas maybe?

PM sent.  I have to correct myself.  The inside of the folding door attached to the nose gear is green, not silver.

Do you have any pics of this green NLG door, Mike?   I have absolutely none and pics in the Milberry bible (pg 290) of a German Mk5 show AL colour.

 

Cheers, Tony

check out that 'museum spray job' overspray !!

 

I would call that almost ZCY on that nose door, I wouldn't fault anyone for going with a aluminum color either.(in service)
