At the risk of sounding like a rivet counter , what color should the seats in the cabin be? I've seen lighter olive, a brown leather color….what's correct?

Painting up some PSC tracks and what to get it right.

Can't go wrong with OD.

Can't go wrong with a nice OD replicating canvas covers. I've used brown to simulate leather before and it makes for a nice visual.

Any sense of what green shaun ? I'm thinking a faded olive

Yes, faded olive green, cloth fades fast in the sun.

real restored ones vary a lot as well.
i paint mine the same vehicle colour
