I've been looking for photo(s) of this aircraft without success. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction?

I understand this was the top scoring combination of Kiwi pilot in a single Spitfire. This same aircraft was also flown by S/Ldr Checketts in 611 Squadron (FY-H) prior to transferring to 485 Squadron; I assume that the 'FY' code was simply overpainted with 'OU'?  I also understand it was this aircraft in which he was shot down over France.

This is my first choice subject for building my Tamiya Spitfire IXc (far too nice a kit to be sitting in my 'box collection'!).

Thanks in advance,
