RAF roundels on W/NG what & when ?

Postby Vincent.vanGinneke » Wed Feb 28, 2018 11:32 pm

I'd like to add some Blingbling to Burney.....
Was a roundel with the yellow outline ever painted on WD motorcycles ?
Or was this only on early Spits & Hurricane's ?

After a search on da net, and stumbling on all sorts of designs, I have taken the liberty to use a certain degree of artistic freedom.
Suitably brush painted (in 2K) to reach that most wanted patina.....
