With the release of the new-tool Airfix kit as well as the fact that there are many modelers who like the Vc's in those markings, I thought it might be useful to start a forum topic where interested modelers could post and have one location for rreferences. One reason I like SAAF Spits, especially No. 2 and No, 3 Sq. Vc's is they are about the only units that used the 4 cannon fit to any extent- in Italy. Probably not going to post anything on the topic that @tonyot doesn't already have in his archives, but you never know.... To get the ball rolling, here is a nice photo/cpf I just discovered of a No. 1 Sq Vb, which as it turns out, is incorrectly identified as a Vc. (Thanks for the correction, guys!)

Hello everyone... Im trying to lock down some info on R.A.F Codes. I know Sky codes were used but I have an Aviaeology Hurricane decal set AOD72007.1 from the B.o.B.. My first question regards the color of the codes. All of them in the decal set are in Medium sea grey, for the summer/fall of 1940 is that correct ? If not its not a big deal as I can use them for later projects where grey codes were used. Also was white or very light grey ever used ? I know things changed for theatres and timeframes. But Im after mostly the 1939-1940 time frame. Though if there is a definitive source that can be linked to that would be great. Second Question : I'm trying to find a Spitfire to Seafire family tree. In other words what were the equivalents or closest Marks of Spitfire to each model of Seafire. Id like to have it for future reference for some builds. Of course any help received is gratefully acknowledged. Dennis
I was looking for C-130H colors for a topic discussion and found this website. For those of you that don't have it, I think it would be a very good reference for modeling projects; lots of great color photos of cold war jets and props in the squadron histories! Wait until @Courageous and @Sabrejet see the F-86's! Sayonara, y'all, as we say when we were stationed in southern Japan at Itazuke AB! Mike http://www.j-hangarspace.jp/
Howdy, styrene warriors! I just stumbled onto a site that has very comprehensive photos, text, and color profiles of the color schemes and markings used on RAAF 3 Squadron Mustangs, and I wanted to share it with you all; hoping this is a new post and not already on BM. Enjoy- some real beauties here! Mike http://www.3squadron.org.au/subpages/Mustangs/3 Sqn P-51K P1.htm
