Response to Paint colors for inside a MKI or MKII Male

Check out David Fletcher's books (various) as he's published contemporary photos of the inside of a Mk I (I think at Gaza) and a Mk I without its sponsons showing the insides. Tanks at Flers (Trevor Pidgeon, Fairmile Books 1995) has the sponsonless tank and good clear photos of the interior of 785 in Bovvie.

This, and a cautious look at the Mk II in Bovingdon leads me to suggest

Floor - wood or oily black or maybe silver/grey depending on where you are
Engine cover and exhaust - silver paint
Inside of hull and sponsons - gloss white

Your best bet for the detail is to follow the Bovvingdon Mk II - I don't know if she's been repainted internally, but if she has it was some time ago and what we are looking at is at least close to the original. Colour shots in Tanks at Flers show a lot of good details

Fun project - hope this helps

Mike Cooper
Lovely sunny Reading (again)
