Decals needed for spitfire Vb No.126 Sqn.
Posted by TANGO 1 on Friday, January 24, 2003 1:39 PM
I've been asked to build a spitfire Vb in 126 Sqn colours for my friends father who served with the sqn. in WWll.
I have kits availiable to do either 1/48 or 1/32 scale versions but I can't find a decal sheet for this sqn.- and I don't have any pictures of a 126 sqn machine to guide me as to which markings were used.
Can anyone help me out ?

Thanks,
Darren.Wink [;)]

try "hannants"for the decals,their stock is impressive,if they dont have them,they might be able to tell you who does.
for the colour sceme,try the R A F museum at hendon or the imperial war museum,i'm sure the whould have the details on colour schemes you want.

me again,have just checked a few things out,try "aviationusk.com/decals"for the,um,decals.
for te colour schemes,i typed "126 sqadron raf spitfire" & got a load of pages.
incidentally,my hitory book on the raf,(raf 1939-45,published in 1954)tells me the 126 was in the middle east as well,& flew hurricanes & yphoons as well.
hope this helps.

Hey Merv,
I found the colours/markings that I needed for my Malta Vb ! Now I'll have to see if I can get the decals. Thanks for your help.
