In my second post today, here are some photos of my 1:48 Mk1, built as GR-U, N3290 as it was on the 23 May 1940 just before being shot down whilst on evening patrol over Dunkirk. F/O Gillies was taken prisoner. This will be featured in my next article on the in Model Airplane International. Hope you enjoy the photos!
