I'm currently sat here building the Airfix Brewster Buffalo (well, trying to
build). Anyway, the instructions says to paint the inside of the cockpit
with Humbrol 151. The snag is that Humbrol no longer make colour number 151.
So the question is: What colour is 151?

IMHO, it's stupid of Airfix to suggest a paint colour that its parent
company no longer makes.

Thanks for that. Considering the VJ Day set came out a couple of weeks ago,
you'd think that Airfix would update the paint numbers.

There used to be two interior greens in Humbrol, one of them was 151

Sorry for the late reply. Humbrol 151 matches exactly Russian WW2 model 40
helmets. I was lucky enough to have an unused one to paint a scratched helmet.
The old traces of colour and the interior were exactly Humbrol 151.
