They are acutally chrome green (interior green) but most fighter cockpits were delivered in Aotaki, a transparence fade light blue./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yes, I was puzzled by this, shouldn't the A6M2's cockpit be blue? I know the A6M5's was that dark green. But if the A6M2 has the same green cockpit color, it's wrong.

Not only the A6M2. Especially the Ki-84 of the JAAF had that Aotaki blue. Some other a/c, multible engined a/c for example, had sometimes a green interior applied, which had some fade like the RLM02 in other cases like the US interior green. But especiaclly on the Ki-84 is the Aotaki missing.

Here the use of Aotaki can been seen

Kimura is quite right, a translucent pale blue lacquer over the bare duralumin. Faded to a greenish-yellow when exposed to the tropical sunlight.

Also, if anyone else has noticed, the Zero's wingtips are misshapen. I have posted on this before.

I believe Luthier is doing the Ki84, and a gentleman from Russia (please forgive my poor western ignorance if I have stated incorrect country name) is doing the Zero. It is quite likely that they will not see this post here, you might try SimHQ.com, or the Russian boards, is it Sukhoi.ru?
