Would love to have the decals

It's a Mk.Vb from the 52nd FG 2nd Sq. The squadron code is QP@XX, red outline on the stars and bars, and nobody's bothered to paint over the RAF fin flashes. And the picture was taken somewhere very hot and dry, like Tunisia. Great resource for weathering my Tamiya kit. Right click thank you.

I bet it would be a stunner. All the best if you decide to give it a go. I'll see if I have a few more angles of this one for you.
