    Hello Guys one of my r/c friends needs help locating any pics and markings for any 332nd fighter squadron P-47.He's starting to build a Giant scale P-47 and wants to finish in a Red tailed scheme of the Tuskegee airman.
    Thanks TT

    Many of the color profiles from the aforementioned book are available HERE, including three P-47s.

    You'll also find a poor photo of a 332nd Jug HERE.

    This doesn't help with markings, but should be of interest... Benjamin Davis and a P-47...

    Here is a link of the tuskegee kills and what plane they were flying. There were several pilots listed with kills while flying a p-47.
