LPS Hobby from Brazil had produced some interesting new decals to provide colorful alternatives for the Tamiya 1/48 P-47D (Razorback and Bubbletop) Thunderbolt kits. These decals provide some interesting alternative markings for the P-47D as they appeared in RAF service including the commander's black with red trim painted aircraft.
This decal set provides markings for three aircraft:
- Thunderbolt Mk.I (P-47D-22-RE), HD176, 73 OTU, 36, RAF, Fayid, Egypt, Late 1944/45
- Thunderbolt Mk.II (P-47D-28-RE), KJ159, 73 OTU, 30, RAF, Fayid, Egypt, Late 1944/45
- Thunderbolt Mk.II (P-47D-30-RE), KJ348, 73 OTU, Commander's Acft, RAF, Fayid, Egypt, Dec 1944
This sheet provides sufficient stencils and national markings for one kit. The instructions are in color and will also help identify the colors and detail variations for each of these subjects.
You can contact the company directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
My sincere thanks to LPS Hobby for this review sample!
