I'm doing a late war North Viet Nam Mig-21PFV. The Fujimi instructions call for a hemp color. I'm sure these Mig's in hot tropical conditions were probably repainted or had special anti= weathering applications to them. Any suggestions as to what the gear bays color might be or has Fujimi got it right with hemp.
thanks for suggestions.
The VPAF MiGs left the factory painted silver for anti-corrosion protection. The wheel wells were undoubtedly painted there as well, and there seems to be some consensus (at least a little) that there was a color not dissimilar to RLM 02. Many earlier MiG wheel wells were in a darkish medium grey, and I've seen pics of MiG-21s with wheel wells ranging from bare aluminum to electric blue, so almost anything goes. I'd say "hemp" is likely their take on the grey-green color mentioned above. Upshot is, it's doubtful anyone knows for absolute certain.
