Konstantin, I will remember that A-14 was a finishing colour, not a primer!  As far as people not having evidence for Il-2 interior colours other than ALG-5 and A-14, I hope you're right, as all my Shturmoviks are now painted in grey as far as the interior is concerned.

Another image of the Il-2 cockpit area; aircraft may be under restoration:

Nice thread, John!  I hadn't seen that one at scalemodels.ru.  Looks like my library of Il-2 pictures is going to be getting larger still!  The picture you're posting here is of the Il-2 arrow at the Prague-Kbely museum, and it has indeed been restored.  This is pre-restoration.  Although physically and structurally they did a beautiful job on the restoration, they unfortunately repainted it incorrectly.  The used a three-colour scheme for the topsides, which is correct, but they painted what should be tan, in that fictitious reddish-brown colour, “AII Brown”, and the grey should be a bit darker, in my opinion.  They also repainted the interior in what appears to be “IMUP” – Industrial Metal Use Primer, another apparently fictitious colour.

What would be the correct cockpit colour for an early La-5? I've read that early LaGG-3's were finished in aluminum paint; the same would be possible for the La-5. This walkaround seems to show a very light, shiny colour which looks to me like aluminum, not A-14:

I would love to find this thing and have a closer look at it, but Virginia is a very long drive away, and I'm not sure it's even there any more - I think someone was trying to sell it a few months ago! Note from the windscreen shape that this is a later (series 9 and up) La-5, not one of the very early ones. So, is it aluminum or A-14? Thank you for any advice on this question!

John,  Smiley
colours of that "specimen" are highly questionable.  Exterior green colour definitely isn't original. Engine bearers were not painted same as the wooden fuselage.  Most likely the wreck was repainted while in the museum/private collection, or maybe before sold.
IMHO, the interior was overpainted with something that resembles the original interior colour.  From photos it could be any of the three options:  silver (AII Al), light gray (AE-9) or dark gray (A-14)....

Cheers,
KL

Well, thanks, KL - now I've got three options...  Cheesy But am I right about the use of AII Al in the cockpits of early LaGG-3's? Thank you!

Hi John,
only on wooden parts. The metal parts were of some other color.
