This aircraft has an extended tail fin flash marking.

"To counter Luftwaffe reconnaissance flights over the UK's south-west approaches,
'B' Flight of No 87 Sqn was detached to the tiny aistrip at st Mary's in the Scilly Isles
on 19 May 1941. Immediately after arrival, Ivor Badger was scrambled to the south-west
to shoot down an Ar 196 seaplane, thus gaining his second victory. He returned to the
Islands on further detachments throughout the summer, when he regularly flew this aircraft,
as did Sqn Ldr 'Widge' Gleed, and Flt Off 'Bee' Beamont."

Light Wear – I added some subtle colour differences,
to break up the monotonous black colour and make it less shiny:

I hope you like it
Cheers, Setback
