    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

    Haven't got anything to hand, TT, but Osprey recently added this to their titles. Not sure of the actual title of the book, but it covers the outfit, including profiles, and might be in the 'Aviation Elite' series.
    Contact details for Osprey in the 'States:-
    E-mail - info@ospreydirectusa.com
    Tel. 248 399 6191
    Fax 249 399 6194
    Or visit Osprey Publishing - Military History Books
    Hope this helps,
    Terry.

    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.
