Hi Guys,
I'm collecting info for a couple of build I'd like to do over the Xmas break.
In a fit of madness I purchased the Airfix 1/48 Spitfire mk1 and the Hurricane Mk1 kits.
I'd like to do at least one of them that has the Black and white undersides.
The kit decals don't include this as a possible scheme.
Is there a directory of the squadron letters that would be applicable to one or the other for the 1940 period up to and including the BOB.

I figure I may have to cobble something together from the spares box if the pilot was a kiwi all the better.

Would any of Cobber Kains Hurricane Hurricanes have had the B/W scheme.

I hope this makes some sense.
Now back to writing my Sociology essay
