Superscale 48-879: P-47 Thunderbolts

Units: 84 FS/78 FG

The second new P-47 sheet is also from the 78 FG. Again, the recommended kit is the Tamiya P-47D.

First is 'No Guts, No Glory', a D-25 with the Hamilton Standard prop flown by Maj Benjamin Mayo. His aircraft is one of the RAF Dark Green over Sky planes with the black outlined tail stripes and D-day stripes on the lower fuselage.

The second option is an older D-6, 'Okie', flown by Lt Quince Brown. Unlike the previous plane, this one has a Curtiss Electric 13' symmetrical prop. It also has the normal camo of Olive Drab over Neutral Grey with non-boardered tail ID stripes.

Again, full stencil data, insignia and cowl checks are provided for one aircraft. My personal feeling is that those aircraft painted in RAF colors probably didn't have a full stencil suite.
