Title: Spitfire stencils on war time?
Post by: citrico on June 04, 2013, 07:31:50 PM
hello all!, this is my first post on this forum.

Hi all.

I´m finishing a pair of PR Spitfires. I´m wondering if they should have full stenceling or not, specially the FR.IX. I´m placing the decals now and reference photos doesn´t shows this detail. In particular i´m building a pink FR. IX and a PR. XIX type 389.

Here are two reference photos at the end of the page (a thread of a beautiful FR on a bigger scale).

Stencils would have been applied at the factory but any subsequent repainting would have obliterated them and I doubt there was any effort to reapply them. There close up photographs of PR Spitfires on which stencils can be seen.
