This is a livery pack (previously published separately) for six RAF aircraft Squadron 303 - Polish heroes fighting in RAF units during WWII especially the Battle of Britain. Historically, it was assumed that the Polish Squadron 303 shot down a total of 126 German aircraft and broke the record.
Each of these planes has a story that I tried to keep as much as I could. I relied on historical photos and descriptions. In some liveries I’ve also added WWII related decals. Each of the planes has the original RAF paint, No 303 Squadron logo and English / Polish markings, numbers and other markings.
The package includes the following paints:
- RF-D s/n EN951: flown by ace Squadron Leader Jan Zumbach, May 1942, had DUCK decal.
- RF-M s/n BS451: flown by ace Squadron Leader Jan Falkowski, Jun 1943, with the inscription JOAN, added the original inscription used on one of the 303 Squadron aircraft after Battle of Britain ended
- RF-K s/n BL670: ‘KRYSIA EVER READY’ it was built by EVER READY COMPANY and used in 303 Squadron in 1942 and 1943. Later, ‘EVER READY’ was replaced with ‘WOJTEK’
- RF-G s/n BS556: was manufactured as Mk V, and later upgraded to Mk IX standard. It initially served with No 611 Squadron RAF, after brief service with No 315 Polish Squadron. From June to September 1943 it remained with No 303 RAF Polish Squadron ‘Kościuszko’.
- RF-A s/n P8385: with the inscription IMPREGNABLE of F/O Feric, Northolt, May-July 1941. The plane had Pluto as a hallmark, and I also added the original inscription used shortly in Germany after WWII ended.
- RF-J s/n EN175: these markings were originally on another aircraft: HURRICANE, which also served on the 303 Squadron RAF. I got this information after this livery was published. Even though it is not true to history, I left the painting on the Spitfire
