  1. Just out of curiosity, what print settings do you use on your HP Envy?
  2. Fantastic Marauder build; one of the best I've seen. A small correction on the historical caption, the 386th Bomb Group left Boxted in September 1943 and were based at Great Dunmow (also in Essex) until early October 1944. Keep up the great work.
  3. The important thing Eddy is that it is your diorama so do what pleases you, not others. If however you're seeking 100 per cent accuracy then the P-38's left Kingscliffe in July 1944. The 78th Fighter Group were equipped with P-47's at that time so your scenario would be spot on! Look forward to seeing the finished result.
  4. Lovely Lightnings Eddy, but before you take the plunge on the P-47 just thought I'd better let you know that the 20th Fighter Group didn't operate Thunderbolts but replaced their P-38's with Mustangs. Hope this doesn't scupper your plans, the Airfix 1/48 Mustang would make an excellent cabinet filler!
  5. If you're considering a 479FG machine you should check out the Osprey title below which has plenty of excellent photos and a number of colour profiles: https://ospreypublishing.com/479th-fighter-group Hope this helps.
  6. I think Crafty Computer Paper are now trading as Homecrafts: http://www.homecrafts.co.uk/laser-water-slide-decal-paper-clear-a4-pack-of-10?gclid=Cj0KCQiAmITRBRCSARIsAEOZmr5KEn4Yj6W4YxO90UOJZ1hT44pFbJa4m3kD01ENtA9UwPkC5IdXo2oaAm31EALw_wcB
  7. Fantastic NMF finish. The codes on the starboard side should read A-G4 but a great build nonetheless.
  8. Have you tried looking here; a few period colour shots: http://www.controltowers.co.uk/ Enjoy!
  9. Sorry but no, that must be another Suffolk based Ashley! I just knock mine up on Paint.Net or Inkscape, nothing shop quality but they're good enough for my purposes!
  10. In reply to your final question, I have got as far as creating a sheet of 34BG decals but in terms of getting the B17's built that is one of many long term projects! I am also in Suffolk though...
  11. Hi HP42! You've got the colours and squadrons correct, the 4th BS were a Pathfinder squadron and supplied PFF aircraft/crews to the other squadrons (and indeed other groups). Sweet Seventeen was originally a PFF aircraft with the 4th BS before transferring to the 391st hence the change in nose colour. Hope this helps? Ashley
