Author Topic: Question re 111 Squadron Spitfires  (Read 2938 times)

This is my first post after joining.  I am a keen modeller and found this site by chance.

I am trying to build a representative type of each aircraft flown by 111 in 1/48 scale but the sources are a little confusing re the Spitfires flown by 111.  Its the type 1X.  Several sources say they flew the 1XC and several disagree saying it was the 1XE.  Can anyone confirm which appears to be right please?

Any help with serial numbers and codes would be most appreciated.

According to "RAF Squadrons and their airceaft," by John Rawlings, all of 111's IXs were "C" winged (entirely likely as they were based in far-off Italy.)  Representative aircraft are:- EN138 JU-M, EN517 JU-X, JL353 JU-T, LZ991 JU-C, MA259 JU-Z, MA538 JU-V,MH493 JU-F, MH622 JU-F, MH884 JU-P, MJ252 JU-Q, MJ927 JU-R, MK302 JU-Y, MK714 JU-D, NH305 JU-D, PL168 JU-A, PT416 JU-H, PV270 JU-F, RR239 JU-R.  This might seem rather a lot, but they stayed with the IX until disbandment in May 1947.
