    Info for painters

    Have you ever wondered why some wheel wells and interior parts on WWII AC were pale green or yellow or in the case of the Corsair pale pink?

    This page has a lot of information on the subject.....

    Most of the info appears to be good but they made one glaring error in a caption under a photo where they said....

    "The British adopted Zinc Chromate in their aircraft production starting with Martin-Baker M.B.5 of 1945, several years after the Americans."
    The Brits were using zinc chromate long before the start of WWII not at the end of it! :isadizzy:
