The three aircraft featured in this set are:

  • P-47D-16-RE, 42-75955, 310 FS/58 FG, 'San Antonio Rose'
  • P-47D-23-RA, 42-27617, 311 FS/58 FG, 1945, 'Slick Chick'
  • P-47D-15-RA, 42-23152, 69 FS/58 FG, 'The Golden Gopher'

As you can see in the images above, the printing of these decals is well done as they are printed by Cartograf. You can order a set of these limited edition decals from the website.

My sincere thanks to Thundercals for this review sample!
