When the B-17 STGB Part 2 will be history, it'll be time to tackle this. It'll be my first Thunderbolt in 40+ years and the first bubbletop ever - the previous was a Matchbox razorback. This kit came as part of this very nice Revell gift set. The P-51B got built in the Southern Europe GB with Academy decals from a kit I plan to build next year with these Revell (Cartograph) decals, either in the P-51 STGB or the D-Day anniversary GB. The Fortress is of course a WIP in the current STGB. The instructions can be found here and a review of the whole set in here, at our favorite modelling forum 🙂 See you later! V-P
Hello, While researching the famous P-47C (HV-P, BuNo. 41-6235) flown by Lt. Robert 'Bob' Johnson of 61st FS / 56th FG, i noticed a discrepancy between the artwork and the only photo (known to me) depicting the nose: Where's the "Half Pint" inscription in the photo? The area looks a bit different, so it might be over-painted (?) source: American Air Museum in britain source: Reddit
