Fw: Marking Help for P-47N - Thanks

Thanks a lot Bill,
I belive that's what I'll go for. I am in the process of making a series
of 1:32 scale P-47's from Revell, and am converting one into an "N". But no
decals are available for this, so it has to be looking at others.

Thanks Charles,
I wasn't aware there were any available, I meight consider Shell Pusher, as I want one with as much colour as possible - Natural Metal Finishes are somewhat demanding, and with all the cutting, filling and sanding I have done, I think a partly painted one will be good. As usual when someone has been doing a scratch or conversion a kit will pop up. I know of Jerry Rutmans and now Trumpeter plans one - Isn't that just the way.......
