Re: Paint color for inside model stock cars
Cars were lime-washed between trips in early years to disinfect them, but this was banned (sometime between the wars I believe) as it injured the animals.
In later years they were washed out; after a few cleanings there was precious little paint left (if there had been any in the first place) so you ended up with a general impression of a patchy warm grey, darker when freshly washed, lighter when it had had a chance to dry out.

The models I am going to paint are currently unfinished brass. Unlike with grey resin, I think it extremely risky to ignore painting the interior. I am leaning towards a tan-ish light grey, though I had also considered flat black.
