Roy Sutherland of Cooper Details fame has launched a new range of fine quality decal sheets called BarracudaCals. 

This sheet depicts schemes for two P-47 Razorback Thunderbolts of the USAAF based in Europe in 1945.

The decals are designed for the Hasegawa 1/32 scale P-47D Thunderbolt Bubbletop but should easily be adapted for use on the Trumpeter 1/32 scale P-47 Bubbletop kit.

Markings are provided for 2 aircraft as follows

  • P-47D-27-RE Sno 42-26860 L3*O ‘Angie ‘of the 512th Fighter Squadron of the 406th Fighter Group, 9th Air force flown by Col Anthony Grosetta based at Asch Belgium in early 1945.  The aircraft is finished in Natural metal with an Olive Drab anti glare panel running from the nose along the spine through to the fin.  The fin and horizontal tail surfaces are finished in Olive Drab.  The aircraft has the front half of the nose cowl finished in Yellow stretching back under the windscreen in a tapered stripe.  White stripes are painted on the horizontal tail surfaces upper and lower surfaces.  The fin has horizontal Red, Light Blue and Yellow bars painted across it.  Black and White invasion stripes are painted on the lower aft fuselage.  The aircraft has a Curtis Electric paddle blade propeller fitted and centreline and wing pylons.  A picture of Angie is painted on a bare metal patch the left side of the nose cowl and the word “Angie” is painted under the windscreen.

  • P-47D-27-RE Sno 42-26922 L3*U ‘Little Anne‘ of the 512th Fighter Squadron of the 406th Fighter Group, 9th Air force based at Asch, Belgium in early 1945.  The aircraft is finished in Natural metal with an Olive Drab anti glare panel running from the nose along the spine through to the fin.  The aircraft has the front half of the nose cowl finished in Yellow stretching back under the windscreen in a tapered stripe.  Black stripes are painted on the horizontal tail surfaces upper and lower surfaces.  The fin has horizontal Red, Blue and Yellow bars painted across it.  Black and White invasion stripes are painted on the lower aft fuselage.  The aircraft has a Curtis Electric paddle blade propeller fitted and centreline and wing pylons.  A picture of Little Anne is painted on a bare metal patch the left side of the nose cowl and the words “Little Anne” are painted under the windscreen.

The decals are superbly printed with good colour saturation and excellent register.  The decals of the nose art have been printed separately and are very crisp and clear.  The carrier film is ultra thin and has minimum excess carrier film surrounding the decal.  

The instruction sheet is printed in colour and gives excellent detail on the colour scheme and decal placement and application.

Thanks to BarracudaCals for the samples
