I am building eduard's I-16 type 10. The color option i chose is the b scheme-brush painted medium green over grey. My question is about the wheel wells, are they still painted light blue, or are they painted the same grey as the underside?

Hi Matt

I don't know if it's 100% correct for the I-16, but I think I used WEM's VVS metal primer (a pale "duck-egg green") for the wheelwells and the insides of the gear covers for my build.



All the best
