As with things in nature, Jug sheets come in twos as well. This second sheet covers two P-47Ds; one a bubbletop and one a razorback. Again, the preferred kit is by Tamiya or Hasegawa with other by Monogram, Testors, and Otaki being equally useful if you happen to have them lying about.

The first is 'Sleepy Jean the 3rd' of the 395 FS/368 FG in France during early 1945. This plane is in bare metal with a red nose and prop hub with a black and yellow fin tip and horizontal stabilizer tip. It is 'possible' that the wing tips were yellow. Included in this set is a large Black Magic mask to assist you with painting the nose flash.

The razorback is a plane flown by Charles Clamp Jr of the 63 FS/56 FG. It has a red cowl front and all the white ID bands have been overpainted. The aircraft is in OD over Neutral Grey.

Again, you get duplicates of the nose art in case you make a mistake and this is a very short run sheet.
