In my attempt to determine which RCAF Hampden to model (using the old Airfix kit along with the old/re-stocked Airwaves PE) I was curious about the size of the squadron codes that would/could be placed on the fuselage. I did find info on RAF Web which states: 48" sounds a bit large for the Hampden's rather slim rear however I also recognize that the article above does state that smaller letters can/could/were used accordingly. As such, in the case of the Hampden, would the 36" or 30" letters apply? Also, was there any particular rule of thumb when it came to squadron code letter sizes or serial number sizes which could not "fit" on particular fuselages? More a curiosity than a necessity but all input is welcome. Thank you and cheers, Dave
