Hello,

I wonder what color of the radio equipment in airplanes of the Regia Aeronautica was. Was it the same color like the normal interior colo (for example some kind of interior green or grey) or was there some special color for that equipment?

Cheers
Alex

All radio equipment I've seen, and also in users' manuals, were light grey and ranged between FS 36307 and 36373/36463. Practically, were the same hues used for interiors by various factories (Breda, Caproni, FIAT, ...) though there could have been minor differences as they were items produced by different firms.
Surely there was a sort of standardization, but I've not seen official documents until now. Even though, they did reference to paints whose chips and specifications were lost.
I hope it's enough for you.

Great, that helps! In that case, I think I'm not completly wrong when I use Grigio Azzurro Chiaro for the radio.

Thanks
