Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have three distinctive Republic P-47D Thunderbolt examples designed for the 1/48 Tamiya kits. As usual, these decals are nicely printed and very colorful in their subject selections. This decal set provides markings for three aircraft:
- P-47D-11-RE, 42-75429, 84 FS/78 FG, WZ-S, Duxford, 1944, 'Eileen', as flown by Lt Frank Oiler
- P-47D-28-RA, 42-28878, 84 FS/78 FG, WZ-S, Duxford, 1944, 'Eileen', as flown by Lt Frank Oiler
- P-47D-30-RA, 44-33219, 404 FS/371 FG, 9Q-U, Kitzingen, Germany, 1945 (post VE day), 'Always Marge'
As you can see in the decal images, this set comes complete with a full set of national markings, distinctive unit markings, and basic airframe stenciling. You can purchase these decals directly from Lifelike Decals. My sincere thanks to Lifelike Decals for this review sample!
