First, thanks all for your answers..

About the paintjob, bader VA had lower roundels, "kicking hitler" logo and the Lord Loyd I on starboard side..

I have seen profiles where those aren´t present, just D-B and W/C pennant

Thanks in advance

...with D.Bader decals didn't have the "kicking Adolf" cartoon included. Maybe his early Mk.II didn't have the cartoon painted on her nose, unlike his Mk.V.....Airfix's Mk.Va comes with Bader decals option, and the "kicking Adolf" cartoon is included.
Saludos..!!!

Also, no one has mentioned that his Va had 8 303 claliber guns as per MkII, at least as I remember reading it in 'Reach for the sky' many years ago.

I did DB's 5A a few years ago. Bader hated the cannons, his 5A had the 8 303's. Also to the best of my research (which I admit was not professional)his Spitfire never had the "Kicking Hitler" cartoon. His Hurricane in a previous squadron did. I could be wrong but the photo's of his 5A I have and have seen did not have the nose art.
