Nice Touch, although ít's more like a Thump :D , lettering is a tad to large to my taste.
I'd been thinking about something similar for Burney my -ex RAF- W/VH.
maybe : so much owed by so many to so few or just 'The Few' but then in small letters so it fits on the rear mudguard.

I was thinking smaller also at first, but the guy cutting the vinyl decals then had troubles with the crown details. Anyway, it can easily be removed if I get tired of it ;)
A nod to RAF history is a nice touch too! Maybe a small Spitfire outline with "The Few" under it?
This one is nice:

Surely, the Wellington should go on the kickstart?

So the Spitfire must go on the carburettor.
