Does anyone have any photos of Bristol & Wessex Aero Club fleet in the 'uniform' livery of dark blue upper/light blue lower fuselage, silver wings & tailplane. This was worn by their Austers, (and I believe Tiger Moths?) in the mid '50s. I am building a scale flying model of an Auster Autocrat, and would like to finish it in authentic B&W colour/markings if possible - I had my first ever flight in one of these for my 9th birthday (don't know the reg) and have had a weak spot for the type ever since!

Just some suggestions for you.......... Bristol and Wessex Aero club still exists, it might be worth approaching them. Try the Auster Club. Also take a look through ABPIC.

Thanks - I'd already contacted the club, but they were unable to help. However, ABPIC was brilliant, and I now have some good reference material.
