There are four marking options including:
A58-631 The spinner was Red when the A/C was flown at Morotai in April 1945. When the squadron deployed to Labuan it was repainted Sky Blue. The white leading edges were over painted, probably with Foliage Green. There was extensive repainting with Foliage Green and Dark Sea Grey on the rear fuselage where original serial, roundel and Sky band were over painted.
A58-526 was originally coded UP-L, when it joined the squadron in April 1945. About July/August 1945 this was changed to UP-R and the spinner was now Black. There was extensive repainting with Foliage Green and Dark Sea Grey on the rear fuselage where original serial, roundel and Sky band were over painted.
A58-379 This aircraft was stripped back to natural metal and the fabric covered areas re-bagged and painted with aluminium dope. Glaser’s ground crew kept it highly polished. Spinner and cannon fairings could have been light blue.
A58-602 with newer, bigger, shark mouth and newly positioned eyeballs.
