Hi All
Just saw in Todays paper that Geoff Fisken the highest scoring commonwealth ace in the Pacific passed away at the age of 96.

Most famously he flew the P-40 Wairarapa Wild Cat .

Sad to hear of his passing.
I remember building a 1:72 scale kit with some kiwi decals I ordered somewhere of his P40 aircraft when I was a young lad.
