    Product Description
    This new decal sheet features markings for twenty one P-47D Thunderbolts from our recent book "Thunderbolts of the Hell Hawks", the 365th Fighter Group in WWII. The markings are the result of over two years of research, and are based on mostly unpublished photos of the real aircraft. Over 14 spot printed colors as well as 4 color process were used to render the unit's complex and colorful markings. 19 of the subjects have never been produced before in decal form. Decals are printed by Cartograf, so are of the highest quality. Supported by a number of national markings options and two complete sets of stencils, this sheet also has a few bonus markings in the form of squadron patches for the pilot's jackets and some personalized bomb markings. A must have sheet for P-47 fans.

    This is a limited edition release. They will not be reprinted. Full color instructions show profiles for all 21 aircraft. A extremely detailed, 26 page instruction book can be downloaded upon purchase, showing full details of the paint and markings, as well as a little background, of each subject.

    How to apply water-slide decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
