P-47D Malcolm Hood Stencils and Markings
LPS Hobby is a Brazilian designer of waterslide decals for the plastic scale modeling hobby. Based on an internet search, their subjects include a variety of military aircraft from World War II and many small-scale airliners. 1/144 and 1/72 scales are well represented.
This particular sheet is designed for the Tamiya 1/72 P-47D model, and contains markings for three subjects and a complete set of maintenance stencils. The aircraft options on this decal sheet are “Zombie”, a P-4D-20-RE, s/n 42-76594, flown by Capt. Ronald J. Upp, 361st FS, 356th FG, Martlesham, England, November, 1944; “Turtle”, a P-47D-22-RE, s/n 42-26250 flown by Lt. Charles D. Dooney, 509thFS, 405th FG, St. Dizier, France, Winter, 1944; and P-47D-22-RE, s/n 42-26261, flown by Lt. Walter A Gabrowski, 511th FS, 405th FG, Zima, Italy, 1944/45.
LPS Hobby’s decals are printed by Microscale in perfect register. They will make for an interesting, not often seen aircraft subject on contest tables.
Very highly recommended! Thanks to LPS Hobby and IPMS for the review set.
