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?
