C.200 / C.202 / C.205V landing gear colors?

Post by MDriskill » Sat Jul 23, 2022 8:39 am

This seems like it shouldn't be that hard to figure out, but it has me stymied! What color(s) are the gear struts of the Macchi fighters? Wheels? And inside of the gear cover doors?

In some color photos it looks to be the underside gray, and in others more of a glossy warmer gray shade; but one never knows how much to trust vintage pics of course. Also a possibility it varied between the three manufacturers of course. And restored aircraft seem to mostly be none of the above, usually bare metal or silver paint?

Any guidance would be appreciated.
