My first post here. I'm in the process of building the Tamiya kit for a local IPMS contest. This is my first serious attempt in close to 20 years. I'll be using the kit decals for HV J.
Anyway, I have a few questions that I could use some help with and this looks like the place to get the answers. I have been researching them and have come up with conflicting information.
1. What color was the interior of the cowling? The instructions call for Yellow ZC but I have read that they were NMF or silver.
2. Was the are intake in the cowl grey or red on this specific aircraft?
3. Were the wheel wells Yellow or Green ZC, Ref's say Yellow but I have seen plenty of models with Green.
4. Were the gear door interiors painted or NMF? In some pictures the outside/strut doors appear NMF to me. I don't have a good shot of the inside door.
5 Was the firewall really flat black as the instruction call for or NMF? I read somewhere that they were left NMF late in the war.
Any help is appreciated.
Finally, just for the sake of curiosity is this really an "M" or is it a "D"?
