    Does anyone have any photos of Corsairs based on the HMS Unicorn in 1944? I'm building one for the PTO build, and I have profiles, but no actual photos.

    Thanks.

    Still looking but havent had much luck on clear pictures for markings as such as the pictures are taken from a distance and though you can make them out as corsairs thats about all you can make out. Will keep my eyes open though.

    Took a look at the Fleet Air Arm archive but it only showed pictures of Gloster Meteors being serviced on the decks. I read a wikipedia article but it only said that the carrier was a maintenance carrier and it didn't mention or show any Corsairs. Like Mic, I'm still looking out for pics.

    Thanks for having a look. I've spent about 6 hours over the past few days and have found nothing.

    Ok, Terry (Airframes) found out some info and it turns out the Unicorn only served as a transport carrier and never went into battle. So I don't think you'll be able to find a whole lot on it (and it also screws up the model I was going to make of one). Sorry for wasting your time guys!
