Hi Dennis,
I would say: undercarriage legs and bays light blue;
seat lower part, bright green,
instrument panel: AE-9 for early planes, black for later ones
fuselage tubing, some very dark grey or green
radio shelf: unpainted wood with green contours (the same green of outside)
inside of fuselage panels: same blue of undersurfaces
floor: I don't know.
Of course, it is possible that not all the Mig were painted in the same way.
Regards
Massimo

No problem as soon as I have anything to show I will post it, but for now I have two more questions, the first one is the about the seat padding, was it brown leather of tan canvas, also I read somewhere that the Mig-3 seat belts were leather rather that material is this so ?

Cheers
