How about another fine sheet on P-47Ds. This one has three more unpainted aluminum aircraft from the 405 FG.

I'd like to get into more detail, but I've misplaced the sheet and only have the images to provide any sort of reference. I can tell you that the sheet provides one set of yellow fin stripes for the first and third scheme as well as black borders for the wing stripes.

The second aircraft, 'Grumpy' has red and white tailplane markings, and those are provided as decals.  You have full markings for two of these planes as scheme one and three have the insignia placed farther aft than the norm.

Not sure just what kit is supposed to be used for this one, but it would seem like you could use just about any 1/48 Thunderbolt if you are willing to do some fudging on the stripes. I notice that extra bits of red and white are given for the the striped tail version, a very nice addition and something that will undoubtedly come in handy!
