Hi all, I'm currently doing Trumpeters Mig 19 p.m and was wondering if anyone has opinions on proper wheel well color. I'm going to do either a Soviet or East German scheme both silver. I've done some Google searches but there seems to be some disagreement on colors. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

You may find something here that's worthwhile:

It appears to be a dark medium gray to me. I'm sure someone here will come up with a good paint match.

Thanks Don, very helpful. I agree on the darkish gray. I think I'll roll with that. I'm not a stickler for exact color when it comes to the wells, close is good enough fir me. Thanks again!
