Quote from: rickshaw on January 01, 2022, 07:24:22 PMAs the title asks, what colour is RAF "Cockpit Green"? I am building a WWII aircraft...
Quote from: Rheged on January 02, 2022, 08:06:05 AMIt is said that in 1948, Rover boss Maurice Wilks bought remaindered stocks of RAF cockpit green to use as cheap paint on the early Landrovers.To quote the childrens' author Joan Aiken " Is this a true tale.......well as to that I cannot tell you..." but I'd like to believe it!!
Quote from: Dizzyfugu on January 03, 2022, 01:57:31 AMI've heard that too - and I find it credible since Mk. I landrovers used a lot of surplus aircraft aluminum from WWII, so why not RAF paints, too?
