PB4Y-2 Privateer Wheel Well Color


Does anyone have an idea or better still a photo of what the Navy painted the wheel wells on PB4Y-2 Privateers in the 3 tone scheme?

Were they the same color (white) as the undersurfaces or were they zinc chromate?

Would like to get this detail right as I am approaching completion of the Cutting Edge Privateer kit...

Thanks in advance

FWIW I have a book on the PB4Y with one wheel well picture. It is a late PB4Y in the overall dark blue finish and the wheel well looks like a mix of yellow zinc chromate and maybe interior green bits. It is definitely not the dark blue of the aircraft exterior..
