Can anyone tell me if there is a standard colour for the inside of the aibrakes and the associated mechanics? It looks like it's the shame shade of light grey in most photos I've seen, but it has been suggested that the internals match the external colour.

Thanks!

The jet I just checked has the same light grey as the rudder but it’s usually greasy and oily so it looks darker.

Thanks. I'm spraying a 1/48 aggressor (new spinter), #86-0314 so wasn't sure what colour to do the airbrake internals. I figured they'd be dirty but I don't know if they all get the same colour as the tail, or a standard 'airbrake grey'.
