Evening all, Another addition to my Battle of Britain collection. I have Mk1 Spitfires as you might expect, but to date not a MkII, which only came on stream relatively late on. Its been v.interesting finding out about their service introduction. There's very little on the way of in service BoB photos which doesn't help but I did find info about P7350 of BoBMF fame. She flew during early September (including the 15th September aka BoB day) with 266 Sqn as UO*T. I had an Airfix Mk2 complete with the necessary Rotol prop and the Coffman starter bulge, and plenty of Xtradecal codes and serials...the only other additions were a Yahu panel and etched seatbelts. Painted with Tamiya sky and and RAF green with Xtracrylix dark earth. I also used masks for the camo pattern...a bit of a cheat but a good result! Anyhow, here she is, as she was 83 years ago!
