RLM 02 is a color one can use on many occasions while building a Luftwaffe Model. The landing gear bay and the gear it self were considered to be painted in RLM 02 on almost any Luftwaffe design. One reason for using this rather bright color was to be able to identify hydraulic leaking as early as possible. Mr. Paint´s approach to the subject is a rather "bright one", in my opinion. I love this property because it makes it very easy to create pleasing contrasts with pinwashes, providing depth and interesting detail.
