    albacore Mk1 camouflage

    Hi First I would like to apologise for the delay in replying ,I'm having a lot of trouble logging in at the moment for what ever reason. Thanks for the info what I though was a easy question turns out to be a bit more complicated, I think I'll stick with the 5C but will reference it to 820 SQ thanks Seahawk for that , ClaudioN and Graham thanks for the help with the codes, Now I know the correct squadron, and what the codes relate to I'll be able to get better info from the web Thanks for the help Paul

    albacore Mk1 camouflage

    Hi every one as title suggests question about the Fairey Albacore Mk1 .Thinking of doing the Special Hobby 1/48 kit according to the instructions it will be X9053/5C 817 Sq 1943-44. Now the colour call out is upper matt black over Dark sea grey lower Extra dark sea grey. Would I be right to assume that this is a typing error and it would be the five colour scheme, checked the site and can't find any mention of this scheme on FAA aircraft or RAF aircraft , even the box art shows different colours . All help gratefully accepted Thanks Paul
