A pair of bubble-top Jugs


Recommended Posts

These Academy kits bear the product codes 2105 & 2174, but they are identical apart from the decal options.
2105 completed in the supplied decals for WZ*S “Eileen” of the 84th Fighter Squadron, 78th Fighter Group, Duxford, 1944.

These decals were very thick and did not conform the to complex surfaces of the fuselage.

For 2174 I chose decals by SuperScale (sheet No. 72-886) to make WZ*V “No Guts No Glory” flown by Major Benjamin J. Mayo of the 84th Fighter Squadron, 78th Fighter Group, Duxford, 1944.

The SuperScale decals performed better than the kit supplied ones.

Both together...

Thanks very much guys

The llok smart.

I assume the checkerboard cowlings are decals. In which case, good work.

Yes they are - they actually went on well - I had more problems with the invasion stripes and surrounding decals

What a great pair of Jugs. The nose cowling markings took a bit of work I would have thought, even if like you said, the decals fitted well. Nice sky, very well done and presented.

You painted the clouds on? That's impressive. They really look the business.
