    There were at least seven RAF squadrons that flew the Bulldog and they all had colorful and distinctive markings.

    The RAF used to have a section on their web site that listed every squadron that the service ever had with color artwork of every plane each squadron ever flew. They did away with that section several years ago and apparently nobody salvaged those pages. Sad!

    I got a number of skins from those pages when I painted Chris Herring's Bulldog some years sago. Besides the ones you've already painted, I found Bulldog schemes for No. 29, 32 and 54 squadrons. I could send you screen shots if you're looking for more RAF planes to paint.

    The RAAF used Bulldogs and frankly operated them well past their 'use by date'.
    IIRC there were enough around in 1939 to cause anxiety among prospective fighter pilots re the possible use of Bulldogs to form interim Squadrons......

    Try www.rafweb.org

    Each squadron has a series of aircraft profiles, + some have codes + serials

    Whoot!

    Them's the ones!
    Thank you!

    They're on a different site, and the presentation seems to be a bit different from what I remember, but those are the pages I referred to.

    The link I had from some years ago led the official RAF site and they are no longer there, but RAFweb seems to have salvaged them. They have photos as well as profiles now, something I don't recall from before.

    There are Bulldog profiles for the three squadrons I have for the old Chris Herring model that Huub hasn't painted (yet?) for the Aeroplane Heaven model: Nos. 29, 32 and 54 Squadrons.

    The Swedish Bristol J7 No. 5213 from the Svenska Flygvapnet, the repaint was done after a painting from Roger H. Middlebrook.
