Very good CHSubzero, looks like we are building up a formidable skin library for the Spit. Good job.

One of my favourite Spit restorations. If I may offer a suggestion, I believe only the port underside roundel had the yellow surround (if they had any at all in 1940), so as to provide contrast against the night coloured port wing.

1939-1941 was a very interesting period in RAF camouflage and markings history, so many changes and combinations.

I would lighten the brown a bit. There was much more contrast between the two colors.
