In this set, we have an interesting and colorful set of Brazilian P-47D Thunderbolts plus a Royal New Zealand AF example:

  • P-47D, 44-19660, 1°/9° G.Av., Italy, 1945
  • P-47D, 42-26762, 1°/9° G.Av., Italy, 1945
  • P-47D, 42-26780, 1°/9° G.Av., Italy, 1945
  • P-47D, 42-26786, 1°/9° G.Av., Italy, 1945
  • P-47D, 42-26779, 1°/9° G.Av., Italy, 1945
  • P-47D, KL-849, 261 Sqn, FJ-G, RNZAF, 1945

The printing of the FCM Decals line is sharp and clear, with the markings printed on a heavier carrier film that responds well to film softeners like Solvaset. The decal set includes complete stenciling, windows, doors and other essential details.
