    I've got nothing on wheel wells, but I've got a crap load of detail shots if you need them.

    Hi Geo, it's a RCAF one that I'm modelling as well so that could come in handy.
    Serial number was HE422 of 420 Squadron RCAF. Letters on the fuselage were PT * Q.

    Cheers Chris

    I'd be very surprised if they were not black (Night), as other Bomber Command aircraft.
    Cheers

    Sounds good to me Steve, thanks.
    Any other information on how this particular wimpy would have looked would be helpful.

    Cheers Chris

    Chris, PM me your email and what details you would like. Right now I'm scrambling to finish my GB#18 and I'm back in camp tomorrow afternoon so it might take about a week and a half to get you any info.
