This is the one they tried to sneak up under someone and take them out? Guess they had to try a little of everything.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Yeah, this was a high altitude fighter and although unliked by the pilots the guns would allow one to come up on a Zepplin from below. They also carried 2 303s firing through the prop and 2 Sqns experimented with attaching the Lewis guns to the lower wings to fire outside the prop.
One of the paint schemes has a bomb rack as towards the end of the war the Allies were using everything to try and strafe and bomb the trenches.

I wonder if we don't sometimes overdo the turnbuckles. Looking back at my photos from the RAF they don't jump out at me.

Read on Wiki that one of these are at RAF Museum in London but it sure wasn't on display when I went.

Nice James! Those decals should be easy enough, surely you can find a Maple Leaf around there somewheres. I think it's clear that it would be red, not only for obvious reason but the grey scale matches the roundel and the tail.

I thought green but I see your point. Found this though just to muddy the waters.



And this with a different s/n.
