Kits-World Defenders of Malta 1941-43 Model Decals in 1/72 Scale
This sheet includes markings to complete almost any of the Spitfires and Hurricanes that flew over the besieged island of Malta during the period of 1941-43. Letters and numbers enable you decorate several squadron-mates aircraft too. Note the Prosser Hanks Spitfire is missing the usual Volks filter to gain extra speed, the mechanics can’t have been too pleased as dust and sand ingestion would soon take the edge off the engine’s performance.
Specific markings are included for a few of the better known pilots,
Supermarine Spitfire MKVb BR112 X 185 Sqn Sgt Claude Weaver, September 1942;
Supermarine Spitfire MKVc EP829 TN(T) 249 Sqn, Sqn Ldr John Lynch, 28th April 1943;
