I am currently building the Tamiya F4D 1/32 kit as 67-463 to eventually be in the Vereran's Home here.
The color callout is for a light "sky grey" for most of the pit, with black instruments and such. I know I'm getting old, forgetful, and senility is creeping in at a dead sprint, but I seem to remember most of the pit on the D,E, and RF's back in the early/mid 70's as rather a dark grey or black with the control boxes and instruments as either black or textured black finish.
Recommendations, suggestions, whatever???
