This 1/48 scale decal set, available from Iliad Design, provides markings options for 3 different P-47N's flown by the Puerto Rican Air National Guard, Hawaii Air National Guard, and Maryland Air National Guard. Markings are included for three natural finish Thunderbolts. The Iliad set includes 3 special markings and enough marking data to complete 3 aircraft.

The three options are:

  • P-47N Tail Number 489337, 198th Fighter Squadron, Puerto Rico Air National Guard.
  • P-47N Tail Number 488854, 199th Fighter Squadron, Hawaii Air National Guard.
  • P-47D Tail Number 433851, 104th Fighter Squadron, Maryland Air National Guard.

Iliad's decals are extremely well designed and have very bright and vivid colors. Everything is printed on a somewhat thin film. From my experiences with Iliad's decals in the past, I have found that they will set well with and easily absorb Micro Sol, Micro Set. A double-sided, full-color printed instruction sheet is included. This sheet provides the modeler with port-side profiles and top views of each aircraft, with the under-wing marking locations indicated.

This Decal Sheet Specifically calls for the Revell P-47N but also says with proper study and some trimming for perfect fit they can be used with other manufacturer's P-47 Lineup.

This decal set is highly recommended. The Iliad website is a great first option to purchase their products, and they also provide a list of retailers who stock their products.

Thanks to Iliad Design for supplying the review sample and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
