    Nice one Ron is this X4561 ? it was delivered to 92 Sqn. at Biggin Hill in Dec. 1940 and had the port lower wing painted black as per Day Fighter Scheme ( roundel on it outlined yellow). 4561 was a Mk. 1a but this was the time when 92 had a few cannon-armed 1b s for trials.
    It looks more realistic in black-white !

    Beautiful Ron, but could you possibly get some more light on it? Its a wee bit dark and i'm sure it would stand out better in better lighting. :)

    Welcome Ron, you have one really nice Spitfire model there.
    For a moment, before I saw entire fuselage code, I thought (because of Letter "B" next to the roundel) that this is a model of Douglas Bader's machine.
