There are a lot of photos of 73 Sq in France in Peter Cornwell's The Battle of France - Then and Now.  Much as scheme 4 with a plain tail.

Thanks, I reckon I'll be able to bodge something to my usual standard. As one of my school reports read, 'If his ability was a fraction of his enthusiasm he'd have a chance in the exam'- nothing's changed much really!

I have a question for the moderators in this GB.

 

You say " aircraft flown".

Does that mean it doesn't have to be in markings of a certain pilot ?

Is it about the type of plane or the pilot's markings ?

 

I have the 1/18 Me 109 E. 

It would like to paint it as a "museum" 109 E. 

I don't like adding personal codes if I can avoud it.

 

To be short. Can it be finished with just the national markings ?

 

I would like to know before I enter the GB.

Not a build host but @LorenSharp is pretty fair and I think as long as it was a type operated in the timeframe I think he will allow it ? Looks to be an 190 Emil so I think that definitely counts for the timeframe.

I was referring to types flown, markings can be whatever you like as long as they're accurate for the era. A museum look would be fine as I'm concerned.

Thank you.

 

You might wonder why I don't want to add codes.

With codes of a cetain pilot,all has to perfect like it was back then.

With a "museum " plane,there is room for own ideas.And the paint job can be clean without any weathering.

 

Just my way of doing things.

 

Still plenty of time to find a Belgian subject too.

Not very original, but I have Eduard's 1/48 early Spitfire twin boxing waiting for an excuse to be started, so I'll aim to do one of those in appropriate markings.
