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 Commonwealth P-47D Bubbletop Thunderbolts. The subjects include:

P-47 P-47

  • P-47D-30-RE, KL315, 42 Sqn, AW-F, Burma, 1945, as flown by Sqn Ldr MM Soutter
  • P-47D-30-RE, KL339, 81 Sqn, FL-O, Java, 1946
  • P-47D-30-RE, KL-328, 73 Sqn OTU, 14, Egypt, 1945, as flown by Sqn Ldr DH Clarke

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

My sincere thanks to LPS Hobby for this review sample!
