Mind: this item is a decal sheet that serves to decorate a scalemodel. The scalemodel is not included and needs to be ordered separately.

Product description


This sheet includes markings to complete almost any of the Spitfires and Hurricanes that flew over the besieged island of Malta during the period of 1941-43. Letters and numbers enable you decorate several squadron-mates aircraft too. Note the Prosser Hanks Spitfire is missing the usual Volks filter to gain extra speed, the mechanics can't have been too pleased as dust and sand ingestion would soon take the edge off the engine's performance.

Specific markings are included for a few of the better known pilots,

Supermarine Spitfire MKVb BR112 X 185 Sqn Sgt Claude Weaver, September 1942

Supermarine Spitfire MKVc EP829 TN(T) 249 Sqn, Sqn Ldr John Lynch, 28th April 1943

Supermarine Spitfire MKVc JK879 T-B 249 Sqn Flt Sgt Jack Hughes (RCAF)

Supermarine Spitfire MKVb EP706 T-L 249 Sqn Plt Off 'Screwball' Beurling, September 1942.

Supermarine Spitfire MKVb EP691 X-A 229 Sqn Note: This aircraft has the bright desert sand overpainted with 'PRU' blue.

Supermarine Spitfire MKVb BR498 PP-H, Wg Co Peter Prosser Hanks Note: This aeroplane was not fitted with the Volks filter and was highly polished for extra speed.

Hawker Hurricane MKIIc Z3580 XJ 249 Sqn, later went on to the Night fighter unit. 8.
