This video will walk you through how to apply the first batch of aircraft interior color to your cockpit.
I personally used a dark blue that I purchased at a flea market for a base coat.
This blue was actually the color of a light grey and a very light grey that is commonly used to paint aircraft windows.
I applied a light brown to the inside of the cockpit and then used that as a basecoat.
I found the light brown was not the best color to work with in this process, as the dark blue in the picture is too dark for my taste.
I ended up going with a lighter grey to match the other colors on the plane.
I also added some orange to the interior of the pilot’s seat to help bring out the light grey tones that I wanted.
To create a dark grey color, I applied this paint using my spray gun.
Once I was satisfied with the results, I sprayed the entire plane with the lighter grey.
I then went back and used the lighter colour to mix the darker grey.
The result was a very subtle dark grey that was very easy to mix and match.
I used the same basecoat as before to apply this final coat of the dark grey to the plane, which ended up looking a lot better.
I also applied a final coat using a lighter green to match a grey tint in the cockpit.
This green was a lighter shade of green that I found at a local paint store, and I ended the final step of the process with this green as my final colour.
If you would like to use a lighter color, use a medium green, and blend it to achieve a lighter, more matte finish.
You may also want to use white to match your aircraft.
I have included a video that you can watch that will walk through the entire process of applying aircraft interior interior color and how to mix it with other colors.
