No.453 Sqn  "Ready to Strike"

January 1945

 

 

 

This is my 5 plane skin pack for this unit. I also made the emblem above too. All markings and camo were hand painted. No one Spit is alike. They are all unique. This unit was a ground strike unit that fought during Bodenplatte. Please enjoy killing sausage with these birds.

I love the idea of going after German targets with a big "F-U" on the side of my airplane! Just says it all!

Sorry gents I have been struggling to get my game updated. But alas I did and I will resume skinning soon. I need to finish out this squadron and then do the rest of the 340th Sqn (French).

Just FYI the upper wing surface roundel is not accurate for time period. It should be Type B before January 3rd 1945.

This was the only MkIX that I could find.

Thank-you 

 

Absolutely great stuff. Any chance we could convince you to do an equally beautiful set for No. 401 Sqn. RCAF?

Spektre, thanks for considering that.

 

AFAIK they were flying Mk.IXBs until May 45 and then switched to Mk.XIVs. I hope my scans are somewhat helpful.

 

Here is some 401 sqn Spitfire galore from the following publications:

- Nijboer, Donald. No 126 Wing RCAF (Aviation Elite Units) . Osprey Publishing Ltd.

- Chapis, Stephen; Thomas, Andrew. Allied Jet Killers of World War 2 (Aircraft of the Aces) Bloomsbury Publishing.
