C-47 Interior Colors

My Father was a pilot in the 313th TCG/47th Squadron.  A friend is building a model of a C-47 with the D-Day markings of my Dad's plane.  I'm looking for the interior colors of the troop/cargo cabin as well as the cockpit.  I would appreciate any helpful information or direction on where I can go to get this information.

    You can also go to Google ,  then search for 
    Images C-47 Interior
    and
    Images C-47 Cockpit
     
    Click on the  link to the  images that comes up  (usually the top one in the list)  and click on those  that seem to show what you want.     Follow through to the original sources for any that seem authentic, i.e. a museum display, original photos etc.

    Yes, Bartram Hart Dilks Jr.  He was a F/O during the invasion.  The site is great!  Thanks
