I've made an historic based skin as well as the restored, both with blanks.

Thanks heaps again for doing this.
I didnt even know a photo of the aircraft existed,
The airframe was painted in Clelands scheme for a Warbirds over Wanaka show we have here in New Zealand Which the lates Jack wife Isobel made an aperance.(it normally represents 'Miss Torque')
I wonder how the guys painting it got it so wrong http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Ahh well its still pretty close, and good enough for me

This does my head in no end.
Even the historians tend to walk around with their eyes closed.
At first glance I thought the name was exactly what you had said it was.
Looking at the photograph that you posted, the A/O looks like it could be either or, don€t you think?
The tail of the so called O comes off it more like an A.
To make the artwork, I took the name off of photograph you have posted then distorted it to make it look flat 2D.
After using that as a trace, that€s when I noticed that the O is drawn more like an A.

As I understand it, the name Isabel is the more common spelling, but again, this does not mean a thing. To add more confusion to this particular instance, the link I found lists it as Isabell, which it definitely can€t be a double L.

I still have the full artwork for this plane, so the A can be made into an O if you wish.
I really don€t have a problem with doing it, so if you still need it doing, do let me know.

I€ll leave this open for debate, as it is quite a good example of what we are up against.

I agree with you fully and the A is fine with me as the joining loop at the bottom could well be an a http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
I assume the group that painted it also painted Hurricane P3351,
which doesnt look like any 73Sqn battle of France Hurricane that ive seen.

all in all I think you have it about as close as can be done http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
