Thank you for these pictures!!!
I take it these photos will be useful to you? I'm glad I could help. I have no idea how wartime B-17s were painted inside; I'm personally more into jets. I believe Aluminum Overcast had a pretty long history of owners before EAA acquired it, perhaps one of them painted the interior green.

Has anyone got any photos of red on OD planes?

so glad I found this great thread! I am scratchbuilding a 1/32 B-17G based on the combat models vacform model. I am currently working on the top turret & what I really need are detailed pics - I've been through this entire thread & found some good ones.....but what I really lack are images of all the gubbins in front of / behind the hand controls & gunsight - ie the stuff you see forward of you when standing upright in the turret - so the mounting points for the guns, the stuff directly in front of you such as the mount for the gunsight, the feed mechanism for the guns, wiring and cogs and gears behind the hand conrol / grip & underneath the gunsight etc
also the outside features of the railings / mounts for the ammo boxes - the inside of the longest rail has a kind of hash pattern thusly # but does the outside?
any help greatly appreciated
