Missed this first time around, so I’m glad it’s having a 2nd showing.
That’s a lovely Spit with a great Aussie connection. I’d better read up a little more as this Pilot and machine are new to me.

Cheers.. Dave

Ditto, a great build and a great tribute.

May I ask where you got the 234 Sqn emblem from?

Also, if you are not familiar with it, I cannot recommend highly enough:

and the companion volume

Hi Damian

Thanks, and you will find the Squadron emblem (1/48) in the Montex mask set K48200. Hannants have them if interested. DK decals have released full decals for this aircraft in 1/72 in set 72045 Spitfire I/II Aces, but have since sold out, but they may be available from other sources.

The books look like a great read, thanks.
