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

Thank you very much for the information, it was your build that I got a lot of information from so it is great to see everything listed in one place, it certainly helps me and hopefully will help others as well.

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
