'Star of Stone' Spitfire

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the good folks of the Encyclopedia Britmodeller could tell me if there were ever a set of decals made in 1/48 - either as part of a kit or as an aftermarket sheet - for the 'Star of Stone' Spitfire, which I 'believe' was a Spitfire Vb and had the registration BL637 and carried the code FN-Y when flown by Flt. Lt. Karl Theodor Jacobsen of 331 Sqn before he was short down in June 1942. Any help would be much appreciated! Cheers!

So, Vb looks right.

 

@Smithy  may well be a chap to ask, or as he is in Norway, will know folks who may well know more.
