Cockpit color for F/A-18A?

5 posts in this topic

I haven't done a Navy build in a long time. Which color (FS) do I need for the cockpit? Thanks.

Aaron,

I believe it is FS 36231, Dark Gull Gray.

 A lot of the instructions call for FS36231 Dark Gull Gray. I looked at it and it seemed darker than what I remember when I was with VFA-151 back in 188 to 1990. I contacted a Reserve Squadrons Corrosion Control shop and they said the Publication says FS23270 Neutral Gray. I also looked on Cybermodeler's web site and it lists FS36270 Neutral Gray for cockpits as well. Here is the link to the page where the information on cockpits can be found. http://www.cybermodeler.com/color/cockpit.shtml I hope this helps and doesn't muddy the waters on this.

Amazing information. Thanks!  It's for a friend who flew with VFA-87 in 1988-1991, so I want the details right. 

 

Thanks!
