I know there were GR.9s at Wittering though I don’t have specific codes. Apparently ZG506 visited Wittering while based at Cottesmore carrying the same livery as depicted in option B of the kit issue.

don`t forget to drill the two holes for the refueling probe before you attach the wings,it will be interesting to see if you get a big gap when the wings go on and the lerx like i had 😉
