Default Radium or phosphoric paint on gauges

Hi,
Bought Yak on Autumn sale . Thx.

According me something is wrong with gauges - cockpit is too dark (gauges).
No additionl light in VC, its ok, but it was a period than in russian planes (and romanian too) used radium paint or phosphoric paint periodically glowing on indicators on gauges.

Here is example:





Its present for example in DCS MiG-15bis (RV) so its possible to do.
Please add it in the next patch. TY.

As far as I know, Ra-based constant glowing mass was stopped in production since 60's and not later than 70's.
Hve you tested your gauges with a radiometer?

I also think that gauges should have some kind of luminescence applied. Will try to provide a photo of a 52 cockpit at night.

Yes, after 1970 they used luminescence - Luminous mass of temporary action B. And before 1970 they used continuous light composition (SPD) containing Radium-226 salts.The letter "B" (check near "3" hours) on the AChS clock dial means that the hands and dials of the watch are covered with a "temporal light mass.



If there is a "K" index in the name of a gauge - this gauge is for red lighting. However, I do not remember on our DOSAAF Yak-52 any external or internal lighting for main instruments. There were lamps inside Landysh-5 (red lamps), SPU-9 (white), GMK-1 and ARK-15 (white) control units on our plane. Red or white lamps were easy replaceble with lamps of any colour avilable. And for main flight gauges we had a flash light. But we never were flying night time.
