  1. Could you post the image please? Would like to see it.
  2. A shout out to Guppy35 as well.
  3. Thank you for the reply's I should have pointed out that a friend has all the serial numbers on the first batch of Mk IX's for 64 squadron they are BR581 (SH-Z), 592, 594, 596, 600 (SH-V), 601 (SH-F), 602 (SH-G), 603, 604, 605, 624 BS105, 126. I was hoping someone else may have documentation that would fill in the blank. Also this sight has two profiles that show how the serial numbers would have looked,even though they put them on the wrong planes. https://www.markstyling.com/latespitfires3.htm
  4. Anyone have a registration number for this aircraft?
  5. I have a photo of it seen it on Facebook. .

    Here is a partial with some nose art.
  7. I wonder if any of this crew had anything to do with RAF 84 squadron? https://hiveminer.com/Tags/raf,shaibah A Scorpion was the squadron emblem. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No._84_Squadron_RAF#/media/File:84sqncrst.png They were at Shaibah. I don't think I am seeing a head now its a Scorpion in a similar pose to the photo.
  8. I bought that book Tony and the image has some text and actually names the Boston. It is called "Queen of Shaibah III". Surely they meant Queen of Sheba right? Wrong Shaibah was a RAF airfield in Iraq. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaibah_Air_Base So maybe crew members had some history with this field? Playing with the photo some it looks to have the text surround a head. The letters SH are visible above the head in a wedge shaped font I think?
  9. Thank you Tony much appreciated. Also not sure if you knew there is a decal sheet with this aircraft on it. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/DKD72064
  10. Thanks for all your help. I found online an image of this plane.
  11. Any additional images of this aircraft about? Profile is not looking to be a match to this photo. The quality of the image is not good either.
