Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have three distinctive P-47 Thunderbolts that will definitely compliment either the Hasegawa or Tamiya 1/48 P-47 kits. Two of these subjects are actually the same airframe as it appeared several months apart.
This decal set provides markings for three aircraft:
- P-47D-30-RA, 44-33250, 396 FS/368 FG, C2-L, Nov 1944, 'Arizona Loraine'
- P-47D-30-RA, 44-33250, 367 FS/358 FG, CP-R, Mar 1944, 'Ole Trapper IV'
- P-47M, 44-21125, CO/56 FG, LM-S, Jan 1945
As you can see in the decal image, this set comes complete with a full set of national markings, distinctive unit markings, and a wealth of maintenance stencils. If you're looking for a colorful alternative that isn't from the mainstream Superscale/Eagle Strike/Aeromaster line-up, here is a nice way to be different!
