Just when you thought the Superscale had all the new P-47 sheets, here is one from Eagle Strike. This one covers three planes in a variety of colors from the 405 FG.  All of them have the wing racks installed. The recommended kit is the Hasegawa family, though I'm sure you could use others without any real problem. 

First is an OD over neutral grey P-47D-15, 'Squirt II' from the 510 FS. Propellers are an important part of getting P-47s right and this one has the early Curtiss Electric one, though it was later retrofitted with a symmetrical paddle-bladed one.

Also from the 510 FS is 'Virginia Peach X' in overall natural metal with blue unit markings. This one carries invasion stripes as did the initial aircraft on the sheet. It has the Curtiss Electric asymmetrical prop.

Finally, from the 509 FS is 'Peggy Darlin'. It also has the Curtiss Electric asymmetrical prop, though the trim for this unit is red. It has no D-day stripes.

Not shown is an additional half sheet that has blue stripes and all of the sheet's insignia.
