Hi,

I am looking for information on the interior colors for French fighters. In particular the many different fighter they had in the 1930s. For example, the MS 225 & 230 and other biplanes and parasol-winged fighters. Thanks, in advance.

Hi Jeff

This isn't really my area, but I think I've read the French used cream as an interior colour in the early '30s - later it was midnight blue.

I could well be wrong, but I hope this helps
