Yarra was an Australian who flew with the RAF in Malta with 185 Squadron and was the joint third highest scoring ace in the theatre with 12 confirmed kills.
In this aircraft he claimed his last kill, a Bf109 on the 11th July 1942.

Three skins included, 'Ned IV' with score card and national markings, national markings only and one with tail flashes only.
As there is no definative colouring for the 'Malta Blue' I have used one that I found to appear correct (historic accounts state that any colour blue that could be found was used)

Thx to Robo for the base template and FBS for altered Spit VIII internals
