Hey Ice,

You mentioned in an earlier post that you were interested in making recon missions with the Spit Mk xiv when it's released.

I read something that might be of interest to you: a pilot from 414 & 430 squadrons noted that recon sqns did not normally paint call numbers on their aircraft. But they did let pilots paint on a single letter as an initial and/or paint their name/slogan/whatever on the side. I got this from one of Robert Bracken's books.

It would be nice to get the Mustang I too. Those were the main recon planes until 1944.
