Hi all,

I've got the High Planes kit of the early square tail version but I have found no photos of the interior, including the wheel wells colour. Can anybody help?

Thanks in advance,

Carlos

Hi,

Seems difficult to come by, but maybe you could ask this person?

Carlos,

My best guess is both the interior and wheel wells were sprayed aluminium.

During the rebuilt with the T-33 tail some areas appear to have been sprayed with green primer, but not earlier.

All the best

Carlos,
The era in which the racer was built, and the individual that did most of the construction on the airplane was likely to have painted the interior light gray. It was the fashion then especially in the Southern California area to paint wheel wells and interiors a light gray. Easy to see leaks, brightened the cockpit area for quick recognition of controls yes, but it was a 70's/80's fashion which the Kasparoff's airplanes definitely were finished. Matt Jackson was a student of Dave Zueschel which was an early creator of many SoCal warbirds and racers and he was a light gray cockpit finisher for sure. Almost white in out small scales, light gray gloss is still around in many racers and warbirds restored in the Super 70's and 80's.
