Malta’s 1000th – Hasegawa 1/48th Mk.Vb/trop Conversion
Another Mk.Vb converted to 'c'. Changes and add-ons same as for the one posted earlier for Beurling's 'UF-S', only real difference is large cannon bulges and the model was painted dark grey in accordance with the recollections of Laddie Lucas in his book titled "Five Up". Tommy Lynch was credited with Malta's 1000th victory achieved during the campaign against Axis raiders from Sicily.
