Well folks, here is another P-47D sheet, perfect for your new Tamiya T-bolt, though I should mention that the Hasegawa and Monogram kits are those recommended.  I can only assume that it took a rather long time to get this one to print!  I should also mention that this carries an additional half sheet (not shown) that have insignia for two planes and the blue tail stripes for the first subject.

First up is 'Evie' with a nice nose art and a goodly scoreboard on the side. This 510 FS D-27 has a blue forward cowl, canopy frame and tail stripes. Lower fuselage D-Day stripes, Hamilton Standard prop and spoked wheels.

"Boog" is a D-20 from the 510th in full D-Day stripes and OD/Neutral Grey camo. This one has the usual white P-47 ID markings and uses an early Curtiss Electric prop.

Finally, there is 'The Turtle No.10'. This 509 FS aircraft has red trim on the cowl, prop hub, canopy and tail stripes. This D-28 has a Hamilton Standard prop. It is this reviewer's opinion that this set of markings is close to joining the 'seen it a dozen times club' for overdone model aircraft markings.
