Fiat G.55 ANR interior colours

Thank you for your suggestion.
I have decided to go for a yellowish colour similar to the specimen
in Vigna di Valle.
I will try to post some photos of the interior once I know how to do it!!!

(meaning litterally Leaf Green0
Hope to have been of assistance.

The flaps are those of a Fiat G.59, the G55 has different flaps, the aircraft at
Vigna di Valle is not really original.
What I am after is some documentation of the original wartime colours
as applied and specified by Fiat.
Thank you for your kind help

According to other sources , ex FIAT employees and the Italian GAVS
the colour used is Tekital (a greenish yellow lighter but similar to zinc chromate)

Fiat G.55 ANR interior colours

I am in the process of starting building a late war Fiat G.55 PCM in 1/32. There appear to be some divergence as to the actual original colour applied to the aircraft interior during the wartime period. Can somebody resolve this issue once and for all? Guglielminauk P.S. the example in Vigna di Vall...

Reggiane Re 2000

Yet again you are generalizing !! I live in a village on the Saddleworth moors one of the most pictoresque areas of Britain (Bronte/Last of the summer wine country) as I do not like towns. I married an English girl and lived in London, Chelmsford and Cambridge before retiring in this quaint Yorkshir...

I got it as a Christmas present and I can recommend it.
It is meant more for the hystorian than the pure modeller, but still a
magnificent and comprehensive reference book.

The reason to target Italians (even if they are not in combat zone) is to force them to go home following public outcry. For the Afgan there is not good or bad Westerner, they are all invaders and infidels. Stop propping up the corrupt and unpopular government of Karzai take all the troops home and ...

Am I correct in assuming that the Re 2000 glazed cockpit is applicable to the Re 2002 prototype ? The photos available seem to prove it. I noticed some other differences i.e. square exaust pipes, engine cowling bulges etc. but nothing too bad in order to get rid of that hideous spine and produce a r...
