Hi whoever is watching this space happy.gif

I am in the process of building a 1/48 Pilatus Porter that I intend to build in a Vietnam period scheme. What I want to know is what color was the original interior back then as it appears that they were originally sky grey but look as though they were later painted a lighter color particularly the main cabin area, and was the floor always black or would the floor have been painted black in the later scheme?

I have two images with one from the walk arounds forum hence the query.

Regards

Hi Andrew,

Looking at some black and white photos of porters on the net, while in Vietnam look like they were painted in Light Aircraft grey, with a black floor
