I'm baffled, now. I have just been poking around the website I referenced earlier, and there are two pictures of the MkIIa, clearly taken some time apart, because the squadron markings and paint scheme are different. That's OK, but in this one: [127 kB] http://www.raf.mod.uk/bbmf/gallery/p7350side1024.jpg the propeller has three blades, while P7350 is in the middle of this one: [174 kB] http://www.raf.mod.uk/bbmf/gallery/bbmf3ship1024.jpg and there are four blades. Were the propellers interchangeable on the same model? I'll get on to RAF Coningsby on Monday, and see what we can get.
