Hey guys,

I usually have a hard time looking up original photos so I thought I'd ask here. I am looking for any pictures of Mk IIa Spitfires with the rounded Rotol prop spinners. Any photos where the reg# is clearly visible would be a bonus.

The best I've been able to find thus far is this photo of P7666, however the reg# is partially obscured by the white band at the rear of the fuselage.
The tail band wasn't white. It was of the Sky. Just it was quite fresh applying. It is very likely the pic was taken with the yellow filter and that's the reason for the almost white tone of teh band and the spinner.
Here a couple of exmples of Mk.IIa with the rounded spinner...

Is there something in particular that you're trying to figure out?
