    Hello all, This is my first time on here and I thought I'd introduce myself first before I go any further.

    My name is Tom. I am married (18yrs) and have 1 son (9yrs old). I have just recently returned to modle kit building a couple months ago after 20 plus years. Not too long ago, I watched a youtube video episode of Dogfights on the P-47. The P-47 I'm referring to is one flown by Lt. Sutcliffe and I wanted to build my next Thunderbolt he flew in.

    My dilemma is I've been hunting high and low, inside and out and upside down for the markings of his aircraft. I cannot for the life of me get a good portrait shot of two markings: the machine gun Panda and the lettering "Junior" for the fuselage. The only thing I found out about Lt. Sutcliffe's plane was he is of Jabos Angels. Any help will be appreciated.

    The P-47 kit is a 1/48th scale by Tamiya.

    I forgot to mention, I can use whatever images you can provide me and create my own decal if need be.

    fubar - I tried those images by using copy, cut, paste and cropped on PaintNet program. Never can get a decent sharp images no matter how much I expand or shrink to my liking for a 1/48th scale custom decal. Too bad there isn't anything in 3D I can actually pull and twist the images to my liking. LOL!
