 Most of us don't think of the Pacific or China Burma Theaters of Operation when we think of the P-47 Thunderbolt; however, the Thunderbolt did indeed see action there during World War II and this Superscale sheet offers very nice markings for three such aircraft. Two aircraft are Olive Drab over Neutral Gray with white vertical stabilizer and leading wing edge ID markings. Also, both ships, named "Sleepy Time Gal" and "The Pied Piper", sport very nicely done "nose art". A third aircraft wears a less colorful overall aluminum finish with a red cowling stripe. The sheet has enough stars 'n' bars and stencil data for 1 A/C.

Overall this looks like a very nice sheet--worthy of one of those Tamiya P-47's I have stashed in my closet for sure.
