To the members of the website www.master194.com for their encouragement, and also to my wife Oksana for her patience.


There is some debate as the the colour of the wings on this aircraft. The author chose to depict his model with red outer wing panels, but there is some discussion about the fact that they were in fact green, as depicted in Richard Caruana's illustrations. Also, the engine cowlings appear in fact to have been painted in grey primer, or simply taken from another aircraft that had a more heavily stained white distemper.
