Samantha, Great job! I am thinking about using the same markings for my Tamiya P-47M. I really like the colors. Which paints did you use and how did you mask the camo job? Matt

Thanks guys, Matt - the paints used were Tamiya's the light blue was a custom mix that Allen did for me until I was happy with the shade the dark blue was XF-8 the rudder was a custom mix as stated by the Tamiya instructions, the camo was masked using the "Blu-tac" method. Mike - the decals are after market (I nicked them off Allen ) the decals are from Eagle Strike, set 48238 Link to Item The build log can be found Here
