610 Squadron RAF 1940: 610 Squadron was an Auxillary Air Force Squadron within the RAF. The Squadron was known as County of Chester Squadron, and was made up of part time pilots. The Squadron was equipped with Spitfires and stationed in SE England when the Battle of Britain began and so was right in the thick of things. Why a repaint pack of just one Squadrons Aircraft. It’s not because I have any personal connection. When I was growing up and a keen maker of plastic model aircraft, I always admired a certain manufacturers 1:24th scale Spitfire kit. Don’t think I ever got round to building one… they were quite expensive even then. But they were often depicted in the catalogues I’d peruse, with 610 SQ markings. The Spit Mk1a with those huge colourful Fuselage Roundels, came to be what I thought a Battle of Britain Spit should look like. I came to appreciate later they were a bit of an oddity that ignored the specified size and proportions laid out by the RAF Administration. But they looked good to me and when I found info on the net about most of the squadrons Pilots and aircraft I just fancied doing them for my Aerofly FS4 Spit. Having done them, I share them with those of you who are interested.
Repaints Included: DWA, DWD, DWE, DWF, DWK, DWN, DWO, DWP,DWQ, DWS, DWX, DWZ. . Other Aircraft carried the codes DWH, DWJ, DWM but I’m afraid they didn’t make the cut. I had to draw the line somewhere.
