For the Trumpeter Tactical Fire Fighting Truck, I'm looking for color references for the equipment lockers interiors and inside of the door panels, plus the bonus crew cab interior located mid-way on the truck chassis. Thought I had a local reference to draw upon, but it turned out to be a Water Tender variant, and didn't help. Appreciate it!

Thanks Frenchy. Somehow I thought the lockers would be white or something to help a fire fighter find the right equipment in a hurry. I guess just the same ol' shade of green.

For some reason there are often a few of these parked outside in an industrial area near me. I'll see if there are any there this week.

Hi Jim,

ALL interior (drivers cab and crew cab) is painted forest green, equally are the doors. Seats are in a lighter hue of forest green. The only bright colors are the tools in the compartments.

Again, thanks to all. The close-ups are great, as the kit lacks a lot of the small details in the lockers. But overall, it's quite a kit.

Well, I visited the area as I said I would to try and nail that color down definitively. Not that needed an excuse to ride my bike...
Anyway, at least I know why they were parked there - this facility services and performs upgrades throughout the entire state. They told me to stay on the look out as others will appear from time to time.
