Brazilian manufacturer Zotz Decals is well know for its colourful decal selections and their latest release is no exception.
Entitled "Silver Screen Jugs" it features 6 decal options designed to be used with the Vintage Fighter Series P-47 releases.
The subjects included are.
P-47D-25-RE, 42-226628, 62 FS/56 FG, LM-C, 'Miss Fire/Rozzie Geth II'
P-47D-28-RA, 42-29262, 391 FS/366 FG, A8-S, 'Daddy Rabbit'
P-47D-28-RA, 42-20901, 310 FS/58 FG, 42, 'Passionate Patsy'

Paint masks are included for the forward fusalage areas of "Sleepy Jean" and "Passionate Patsy".
Printing quality is excellent as is the color register, and fans of the larger scale will enjoy this set.
Zotz Decals plan to release some 1:32nd versions of some of these schemes in the near future.
Notably, this decal sheet is the first time that Cpt ( not Col), Fred Christensens "Miss Fire" has been released in any scale with the correct yellow background colour.
SUMMARY
Highs: Comprehensively researched.
Lows:
Verdict: Colourfull decal options which should prove popular with fans of the larger scale P-47.

Damn it Nige, I wish you could have reviewed these sooner as I turned down Sam getting me the VFS kits at Telford as a Christmas present, after talking to Ray and being told that the 'M' version is intended for release in the new year as there is just a small problem with sizing one of the decals
