Martlets a'plenty!

Recommended Posts

I found these while trolling the 'net for reference photos on the Allied and Axis Paintworks website. A very nice collection of factory and service photos of Martlets/Wildcats, including Eric "Winkle"  Brown in front of one of his favorite fighters. I hope you enjoy them; some of them have been posted before, methinks, but many are new- at least to me...probably old hat to @tonyot !

Those are great! At least half new to me, too. Thanks from an old Wildcat fan.

Groovy! Grab 4 or 5 of the old Academy kits and do a dio based on the first few pictures.

Great pics there Mike,..... I have seen a great many of them before but there were some that I had never seen before,.... that colour photo was new to me,.....what a beauty eh!!

 

Oh,... and never say `hat' to a British paratrooper,....... it is the ultimate insult,..... just to let you know. A bit like saying `leg' to a US paratrooper!!  😉😙😀

Cheers

:wicked::wicked::wicked: ...and that proves beyond any reasonable shade of doubt that Fleet Air Arm Wildcat Mk.Vs in the EIF had their undersurfaces painted yellow. :evil_laugh::fool:

Some great photos.  Very inspirational, especially the colour one and the one of the East Indies Fleet aircraft.  Thanks for going to the trouble of posting the link.
