Introduction

This model model was made to represent the aircraft BR543/ZP-T of 457 SQN RAAF. The model is painted using Pollyscale Dark Earth and Humbrol enamel Hu75 Bronze Green for the uppers and AeroMaster Azure Blue for the undersides. The decals are Aeromaster sheet 48-667 'Aussie Spit Mk V - Pt 2'. Unfortunately there were a few problems with the decals eg the Pegasus marking could be approximately 75% to small and other small bits and pieces.

This model was part of the series on modelling Spitfires against Japan (Part 1) in the July 2009 edition of Model Aircraft Monthly.
