        Markings are of aircraft brought down on the same day as the aircraft in the RAF Museum.

              Beaufighter VI. Thank you VERY much. She looks beautiful. Cannot wait to see her in the flesh with some 'companions'.

                What a sight that would be with a Gladiator, Hurricane, Spitfire 1a, Emil, P36 and Blenheim!

                  Ah! So technically a Battle of Britain scheme then. Beautiful work. Can't wait to see this one in her element.

                          In response to your question Jason, still looking for bits, unlike P-51's hard to find.

                          Markings are of this aircraft, taken in Belgium probably just before it's last sortie to England.

                            So representing the one that landed virtually complete in a certain field, in a certain east of England county flown by a certain Italian pilot who was captured, that is very cool as I have original glass plate negatives taken at the time of that aircraft in the field with guards on duty around it.

                              "At 1345 hours on November 11, 1940 two formations of Italian bombers escorted by fighters were intercepted by the RAF off the Suffolk coast. Approximately eight German and seven Italian aircraft were brought down in the sea, and three aircraft made forced landings in Suffolk, including a Fiat CR.42 biplane - the pilot was arrested and taken to force headquarters at Ipswich.

                              Sergente Antonio Lazzari of the 85a Squadriglia crashed with MM6976 (‘16’) near Corton Railway Station and was taken prisoner.

                                Sicobra its a shame you could not share your images with us to ensure authenticity with our paint scheme which will be unveiled to all in the coming days.

                                  Unfortunately I can’t access them at the moment as they are in storage for a house move! But this may be helpful?

                                    Bob and I have been in touch with each other since the early days of Aviation Archaeology which is now over half a lifetime away. Would still welcome sight of your negatives after your house move.

                                      I am so glad that I am heading to Duxford and may be able to see this machine. Have been on the edge of my seat since the pic shown by Beaufighter VI in mid June.

                                        This is easily going to be one of the most impressive warbirds on the circuit. Can't wait to see it.

                                        Quick question on the upper surface camo scheme. Is this a two or three tone scheme? I remember a long running argument on a popular modelling site about whether or not the upper colours consisted of two or three colours, the argument being that one of the colours wasn't showing up on the black and white images. I'm no expert on Italian Air Force colour schemes, but a lot of profiles in many books (and on the interweb) show both. Just curious.

                                          original photos (looking at the elevators in particular) look 3 tone to me, as do the photos of the restored machine. I really cant wait to see the finished article, something really different and it looked mightily impressive in TFC's hangar a few years ago, when it was "just" a frame.
