Does anyone know what color the inside of the fuselage of the MIG 15 had? I am building the Tamiya 1/48 scale and the instruction sheet does not give me much info.

I know that the cockpit and the wheel bays are a bleu-greyish (Hu65) but What about the rest of the fuselage interior?

Fuselage cockpit was light blueish gray. I built the 1/48 Tamiya
once and it called out for blue, way off the mark. Here's a cropped picture, cockpit interior color can be seen behind and next to the black head rest. HTH---John

I'd expect to see the usual "steel grey whatever paint was laying about in the factory that day" colour that so many Soviet things were painted.
