    Hi there,
    Can anyone help: Looking for colour schemes of Franks based at Seoul just before the end of the war. I'm trying to complete a painting of Perdomo's ace-in-day effort, when he shot down four of them in a P.47N.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Clave, thanks , you are a lifesaver. They were aircraft of the 22nd and 85th Sentais, deoicted in the profiles.

    I will apply the finishing touches now. Here is the near-complete WIP, for anyone interested.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Indeed! Good stuff - I like the whole river/bridge/jungle thing, it's a good backdrop for the fighters... 8)

    Thanks guys, I've subsequently 'hotted' up the flames and applied the markings to the Frank. It ships out tomorrow...
