The WOW factor is the shape of the late scheme for 41 Sqdn carried off in as the Sqn Badge, The Cross Of Lorraine...

Welcome to one of my first skins in a while and an updated metal one. I do hope you enjoy flying
this one as much as I did in producing it. Although the Aircraft is a MkXIVe the skin has been painted on the MKVlll CLP wing
Version that I have produced a metal skin for, I hope you approve

RN201 is a high-back Mk XIV with Rolls Royce Griffon power. It was built at the Keevil dispersal factory in early 1945
and delivered to No. 9 MU at Cosford on 22 February that year.
Once the war in Europe was over, RN201 emerged from store and was allocated to No 83 Group Support Unit in July
and stayed with this unit until December 1945 when it was allocated to 350 (Belgian) Squadron at Fassberg. In May 1946
it was transferred back to the UK to No 29 MU High Ercall in Shropshire. It was subsequently sold to the Belgian Air Force
in February 1948 under the serial number SG-31 and was used again by No 350 Squadron coded MN-L and later by
No 3 Squadron as YL-B when it suffered a heavy landing in February 1950. The aircraft was declared as not worthy of repair
to flying standard and was mounted on a pole with code GE-A at Beauchevain. It was acquired in 1988 by a UK collector and
put into storage.
Historic Flying acquired the aircraft in 1998 and restoration began in late 1999. The Griffon 65 engine has been zero timed
and the propeller rebuilt with new blades and bearings.
RN-201 flew again in April 2002 and received its Permit to Fly shortly afterwards.
Its first public appearance was at Flying Legends, Duxford, in July 2002.



I hope you all enjoy this skin.... It is a small tribute to those members of 41 Jaguar Sqn killed in a Bus crash whilst I was serving on a fellow Jag Sqn in Germany...
