This is the Italeri Mk VB Trop kit which I made some years ago. It represents an aircraft from No 249 Squadron RAF based on Malta in October 1942. The model is out of the box, except for a few bits I added to the cockpit. The colours used were mid-stone, dark earth and azure blue from the Aeromaster range. I brush painted the dark earth to save lots of complicated masking. The kit decals were used and I carried out a little bit of very light weathering with artists oils.

Some researchers now say the codes for this aircraft were yellow rather than white. I was tempted to paint over mine but thought better of it....
