Decals and Graphics by Sinuhe Hahn and Piet van Schalkwyk
The South African Airforce operated the ten SAAF squadrons with Spitfires during WW2.
In this gallery we illustrate a two quite colourful ones.
The first machine, a MkVb, AX-N is from 1 Squadron SAAF and was flown by Lt. Eric Robinson, who went on to become an ace.
Apart from the red wing tips, typical for a number of 1 Squadron aircraft, it also bears his logo "Cirecooks IV" on the cowling as well as the name "Phyllis" on the 20 mm cannon.
All roundels used were from generic sheets, whereas the Squadron codes and nose are were test runs printed on an Alps of a proposed Springbokdecals Spitfire decal sheet (firstname.lastname@example.org).
