  1. Thanks for all the info, folks. I'm sure I'll have more questions as I stumble on research! I'm going to have a few pints to buy should I ever make it over to the old country. Bill
  2. Thanks for the reply, Procopius. I'm hoping to do this build up with the markings of the Wellington a distant cousin was on when it was lost over Germany at the end of May 1942, just before 158 Squadron switched over to the Halifax. The info you supplied is very useful, now it's just a matter of finding suitable decals. Thanks, Bill
  3. I'm planning a future build of a Wellington (Mk.II) and am trying to find out some info on the markings so it will be as accurate as possible. Were the serial numbers and codes painted on in standardized colo(u)rs, or did they vary by squadron? I just bought the Revell (1/72) kit and it shows the serial in red, but I have also seen images of the serial in white. I have only seen the codes in a white/off-white color. Also, what is the correct location for the serial number? I've seen some examples with it placed on the vertical stabilizer, but others have it placed on the fuselage near level with the horizontal stabilizers. In case this differs by squadron, I am focusing on 158 Squadron when based in Driffield. I have the serial number and code for the plane if that makes any difference. Thanks, Bill
  4. Thanks, Dennis! Hoi, Jan. Dank je wel!
  5. Hello to the Britmodeller community from the chilly (at least it is tonight) Gulf Coast of Alabama. I signed up a week or two back, but I am just finding the time to post my introduction. A longtime fan of the Spitfire, recent genealogical research has boosted my interest in other RAF aircraft. I have already found some useful info for desired projects and I am sure I will find more as I get further along in the hobby. Thanks, Bill
