First Look

LPS Hobby from Brazil has returned with some new decals targeted for the 1/72nd scale modeler. In this release, they've produced markings for three P-47D Razorbacks refitted with the Malcolm hood. The subjects include:

P-47 P-47

  • P-47D-20-RE, 42-76594, 361 FS/356 FG, Martlesham, UK, 1944, 'Zombie' as flown by Capt. Ronald Upp
  • P-47D-22-RE, 42-26250, 509 FS/405 FG, St. Dizier, France, 1944, 'Turtle', as flown by Lt. Charles Dooney
  • P-47D-22-RE, 42-26261, 511 FS/405 FG, Zima, Italy, 1944, as flown by Lt. Walter Gabrowski

For some nice alternatives to the kit markings in the Tamiya 1/72 P-47D Razorback kit, give these a try!

My sincere thanks to LPS Hobby for this review sample!
