Hello,
I'm preparing a new project, the second Normandie Niemen's U-2 piloted by Jean de Pange in the second campaign of 1944:





for the interior parts, do I have to paint it in lignt blue, as the mig-3 or I-16 ?



thanks

If your U-2 was made before 1938, blue was possible.  For planes made after 1938 use gray A-14.

Same with I-16s - gray for all models made from 1938 (say from type 10 and later)
MiG-3 cockpit is still questionable - floor and seat on one wreck are gray, sides of the plane in the museum in Finland are reportedly light blue.

HTH,
