Surfing the net, I've run into a new (at least to me) acrylic, hobby paint producer from the Slovak Republichttp://mrpaint.sk/farby/lietadla/USSR

Considering that Czechoslovakia operated Soviet equipment, their interpretation of the Soviet color's should not be too far off.

One color that that got me scratching my head is their MRP-49 Light Gray Blue http://mrpaint.sk/farby/lietadla/Československo?product_id=98 quote - Russian aircraft Interior Cockpit, Wheel Well, Seat etc from 1960 to the present.

Could it be the famed PF-36M? PF-36 actually began to be used in the early 50's, but MR's statement could simply be the result of a hasty or incomplete result (Czechoslovakia did receive MiG-15's in the early 50's, after all!).
If the shade turns out to be close to the FS *4233, then we have an acrylic color that can be used to represent the AMT-16, AGT-16, A-36M and PF-36M range...
...or  could it be one of the cockpit grey's used by different manufacturer's, e.g. the 'Yak Interior Grey', instead?

Also, their Czechoslovak AF range should be a godsend to any L-29 / L-39 fan...or were the VVS aircraft painted to Soviet specs?

Best regards.

Hi Peter,
a lot of years ago I had a Czech correspondant that told me that Czech AF utilized to paint interior surfaces with a grey similar to grau 02. Chould this color mrp-49 be based on Soviet types built or repainted in Czechoslovakia?

Hi Massimo,

According to a post by 'Redboost' on the Britmodeller forum regarding the colors of the Avia S-199, (quote) The cockpit colour was mid greyish-blue, not RLM02 (un-quote)
Link http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234967503-kp-avia-s-199/.

Also, consider that MRP-49 is a Soviet color, applicable in their Czekoslovak AF range to aircraft of Soviet origin only, and it is labelled GRAY-blue whereas RLM 02 was a yellowish grey due to (according to some researchers) the chromate in its formula.

Cheers.

Hi Pete,
well, could be that my correspondant hadn't a clear idea of grau 02.
What is the use of this blue-grey, in your knowledge?

Hi Massimo,

As I said in my first post, I'm inclined to believe MRP-49 is either their interpretation of the Soviet PF-36M (and therefore also the AMT/ALG-16 and PF-36, since the shades are very similar) or one of interior grey's used by the Soviet manufacturer's in the 60's / 70's (e.g. the Yakovlev cockpit grey more than once mentioned by KL).

Indeed MR Color states Wheel Well to be also painted this color, and this would not apply to PF-36 which was a cockpit-interior color only, but this could also be the result of poor or hasty research on their side.

Also, consider that PF-36M is called серо-голубой, i.e. blue-grey, same as MRP-49.

Best regards.
