Mike Grant has once again excelled with this terrific decal sheet release.

The markings are for B-17G,  42-38050 "Thunderbird" that flew 112 bombing missions with the 359th BS / 303rd BG flying out of Molesworth. The aircraft eventually became a first mission ship for new inexperienced crews.

The aircraft was bare metal when it arrived at the 303rd but was hastily painted in Olive Drab over Neutral Gray.



The decals are exceptional, in perfect register and excellent colour definition. The carrier film is very thin and will require careful handling during application.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Mike Grant Decals  for the review samples
