I couldn't find anything for the word "Shindenkai"....did you mean the Hasagawa N1K1 SHIDEN Kai(George)? The low wing, late war, single seat fighter?

The Aotake blue-green Nick referred to was actually a primer color used in most spaces where crew/pilot weren't present (wheel wells, bomb bays, etc.). Most Japanese crew spaces, much like ours, were over painted in a green or tan interior color.

Here's a link to some N1K1 George images including a nice color pic of a cockpit build: https://www.google.com/search?q=hasegawa+1/32+shinden+kai&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi2uZ6cxrLZAhUk6IMKHS9nAYoQsAQIMA&biw=1583&bih=748#imgrc=yq8hx4o5Hrp-6M:

Hope this helps!

I just finished the Hasegawa Akeno Flying School kit and for the Ki-43, the instructions called out Mr. Color 127, Nakajima Cockpit Color.  I don't have access to Mr. Color paints so I made a mixture of Sky Type S with a bit of yellow to reproduce the color.  I looked pretty close to the color in Gil's reference above.  Good luck.
