This special (done with chalk) marking meant the final total score of the pilots of the "Kosciuszko" squadron 🙂

Thanks Robert. I imagine it's on this aircraft because it was also Witold Urbanowicz' mount too as flight leader I guess.

Regarding camo patterns, the protocol was for even-numbered aircraft to get the "A" pattern and odd-numbered ones to get the "B" pattern.

I suppose so, too, Gary. There is a full scale mock-up (wooden replica) in Poland presented in the museum of Arkady Fiedler, the author of the "Dywizjon 303" ("303 Squadron") book:

Tuned into your project today to look through the pics again. As I suspected the fuselage decals settled really well into the corrugated channels along the sides. Looks great. I think mine was just a matter of decal age and thickness; they look ok, but just ok and nothing like the nice conformity you have you your hurricane.

Thanks Rui. I'll have to go back and check what brand they were. I don't know much about decals but I use Tamiya Decal softner. Might be a setting solution too. I've slowed a bit as i ran our local junior football tournament last weekend and am camping this weekend. So no time at the bench I'm afraid. 👍
